Former Candadian posterboy's of heart-felt guitar driven indie-pop, Tokyo Police Club return with new album 'TPC' after a four year hiatus.
Written in a picturesque old church building in Ontario, the new record sees the boys in a new light shaking off adolescence and emerging with a more considerered and reflective long play than previous releases. Recorded in sunny California with Rob Schapf, who also was at the boards for 2010's 'Champ' LP - that journey itelf is almost audible.
Stll retaining the anthemic qualities and impish charm we came to love, now tinged with newfound bittersweet maturity and perspective having spent time soul searching in the wilds as a group of friends.
Drummer Greg Allsop explains, "The feeling that we were so close to breaking up gave us the freedom to enjoy each other more, to enjoy making music together... if we're not doing for the sake of being a successful band, but just trying to make an album we're happy with, it takes the pressure off. The expectation was just that we'd so somethig that would make us happy."
Peep the visuals for 'Simple Dude' now.
