Tokyo Police Club – Not My Girl | New Music
Tokyo Police Club are marking the tenth anniversary of their debut EP, A Lesson in Crime, by releasing a pair of brand new ones. Due out on Friday, April 8 and taking its name partly from a rather famous 1995 Smashing Pumpkins record, the first instalment of the two-part series, is called Melon Collie and the Infinite Radness (Part 1). Basing themselves in New York City, the quartet knocked out recording over a week.
To sample the new material, they have shared “Not My Girl”. It begins with a cacophony of hard rock blast, which segues into pure indie rock anthem and it works really well. There is also gang backing vocals, that staple of pop punk, and it, too, works really well.
Topping things off are a tasteful and spirited guitar solo, then the song ending as noisily as it begun. In support of the new EPs, Tokyo Police Club will hit the road beginning on Monday, April 18 in Boston. The 17-date trek focuses largely on the East Coast, will a smattering of shows in the Midwest and South.
