Single - Flower Chain
3rd September 2012
Club AC30 Records
On September 3rd Tokyo sensation taffy continue to take the UK by storm, with the release of ‘Flower Chain’, on Club AC30. Plus, due to huge demand the band have announced a national headline tour.
Following widespread print and online praise for the debut album ‘Caramel Sunset’,
the amphetamine-esque, angular indie-disco-pogo of ‘Flower Chain’ looks set to propel taffy evermore skywards.
B-side ‘Theron’ captures vintage English indie melancholy, channelling the spirit of Ride and Slowdive, and setting the distortion to maximum.
‘Caramel Sunset’ won fans far and wide with its charming amalgamation of fuzztone bubblegum pop, shoegaze and psych, with just a dash of Britpop. Taffy are Iris (vocal, rhythm guitar) Koichin (bass) Asano (lead guitar) and Ken (drums).
