The last time we wrote about TOKYO TABOO was when we covered the London-based band’s woo-woo ode to the city of Angels, ‘LA Love’.
The band have now announced a highly anticipated second album, funded in part by a hugely successful Pledge Campaign.
We listened to the first single to be taken from the album, “No Pleasure Only Pain” :
Written about the animal attraction you feel, even when you know desire will cause you pain, “No Pleasure Only Pain” causes immediate and buzzing, wild-eyed hypnosis as catchy thrum-based hookaboos from guitarist Mickey Danger rush alongside fantastical beats… and the vocal intensity of front-woman Dolly Daggerz creates some immediate and ball-dropping reactions…
Exciting, excitable and ex-cited
