Tokyo Taboo share new video for ‘Papercut’!
“refusing to bow down, the band are fighting against the patriarchy one fuzz pop belter at a time…” – Team Rock
London duo Tokyo Taboo return with news of an upcoming UK tour supporting J-Rockers Espirit D’air and a brand new single, Papercut, out 2nd February 2018 via TT Records.
Papercut races with frenzied riffs alongside front woman Dolly Daggerz’ trademark powerful vocals, creating a seething slice of punk-pop, with shades of the likes of American duo Deap Vally.
Accompanying Papercut is a tongue-in-cheek video depicting a group of apathetic 20-somethings participating in an experiment run by evil scientists. Of the video, director Gabriel Ralls explains: “… (it’s) about how we view and treat Millennials in the Instagram Age; but similarly how we fuck ourselves over as we often know better. Like the scientists in the video, the warnings signs are all around us.”
Having received support from Radio X, Team Rock, Clash and Punktastic – to name a few – it is with their live performances that Tokyo Taboo really shine. As Dolly spits and snarls each lyric over guitarist Mike’s raucous riffs, they deliver each of their sets with an electrifying energy and ferocious power, resulting in a completely engaging and utterly unforgettable experience.
