Like Ladytron, Shampoo and Blondie sharing a room in a loony bin (now there’s an image), teenagersintokyo surely do more than enough to hold their own amidst the competition found lurking in the back yard of their sophisticated, shout powered trash rock genre.
Summing them up to a certain extent, their strange starting point, a vocal only cover of Daft Punk’s ‘Da Funk’ (Miska singing percussion, Sam on random noise, Sophie crooning synth’ and Linda yelling vocals) which surprisingly only led to the dissatisfaction of most around, reflects their alluring, peculiar character!
‘Very Vampyr’ could be lifted straight from any sorority school soundtrack, perfectly suiting any angst ridden anti-socialite down to a t. Check ‘em out before they lift-off, because now, eight years later we find them armed with proper instruments and a boy drummer called Rudy and well yes, they’ve (surely) improved no end!
Their ltd signed 7″ debut is surely worth a ganders.
