To celebrate Record Store Day on April 21st, ClubAC30 will be releasing the debut UK single So Long of Tokyo four piece Taffy. Consisting of singer Iris, bassist Koichin, guitarist Asano and drummer Ken, Taffy have been likened to Shonen Knife, Melt Banana and The Primitives. The Guardian recently praised them for perfecting ‘that deeply flawed genre’ that is Britpop.
So Long is stereotypically Japanese, with Iris’ cuter than cute vocals and an unwavering upbeat manner, it’s hard to be offended by this brand of ‘sugary guitar pop’. Listen to the track here.
Taffy‘s debut album Caramel Sunset (in the Taffy’s tradition of all things sweet) is out May 7th.
