Newcomers Tokyo Tea Room dredge up woozy pop from the Kentish coast on ‘Sleep’. As early offerings go, the cut is a pure, undiluted foray into the young band’s psyche – while breezy, a darker edge is breaking through the cracks.
Starting out as a bedroom project, as an outlet for guitarist and songwriter Daniel Elliott to express his whims through the medium of song, Tokyo Tea Room was born, and with the help of some new found friends, the band soon became a reality. Premiering below is the accompanying music video for ‘Sleep’, which features a bow-and-arrow wielding chicken and the obligatory live band performance but maybe not told in the format that you might expect, by the helping hand of some timely and well-used visual effects.
So sink into a grungy daze and let the band introduce you to a new kind of sleep.
‘Sleep’ is lifted from the band’s debut EP ‘Key Philosophy’, out now via Sexx Tapes. Purchase a copy here.
