Well I’ll be darned. Today we are proud to release Put Your Hands Up For Neo-Tokyo’s Breaking Through, an EP expanding on “Broken Horse / The Blood of Brethren” which includes contributions from musicians also found in Machine Birds and Young Dreams + the completely new track “You” which you can listen to ABOVE or HERE on YouTube.
Speaking on the new EP, Will Cook from The 405 says,
From the very first note in ‘You’, one thing is abundantly clear: this wonderfully named band are painting from a different palette to everyone else. They may be sat in the same class, drawing the same still life, but in the dull autumn gloom they are luminescent. You will notice reference points in the use of the guitar. The occasional nod to this band or that with their vocal harmonies. On the whole, if pushed, I would say it’s the most forward thinking retro music I have ever heard.
