Following a four-day online scavenger hunt that kept fans wildly guessing, Newmarket, ON indie rockers Tokyo Police Club released their new single “Not My Girl”.
It has been two years since the release of the band’s widely successful Forcefield LP, and coincidentally or not, the “Not My Girl” release coincided with the 10-year anniversary of TPC’s debut EP A Lesson In Crime.
The new single is reminiscent of the band’s formative style, boasting distorted guitars, driving kick and snare, and echoing back up vocals, whilst staying away from the more psychedelic keys found in a number of Forcefield tracks; the band seems to have returned to their less polished, indie-garage style roots.
“Not My Girl” heralds the band’s Melon Collie and the Infinite Radness (Part 1) EP set to be released April 8th through Dine Alone Records. The EP is to be one of two, but we have yet to receive an indication of Part 2’s release date; however, lead singer and bassist Dave Monks is already busy acoustify-ing the track.
If you’re already in love with Monks’ infectious, casual vocal tones or you want to awkwardly jump around and head bang your heart out, check out “Not My Girl” and get stoked for the new record. Head to their website for more information and music (tour dates below).
