In 2016, Kent based psych/dreampop band Tokyo Tea Room made underground waves with their live shows and debut cassette. Drawing influence from lots of early 90s artists, their sound showed great promise, with vocalist Beth Plumb’s angelic vocal style in sharp contrast to the drone of the guitar lines. In a handful of tracks, the band set themselves up as one to watch – a rival to Ireland’s Elastic Sleep for dreampop/shoegaze goodness.
At the beginning of 2017, a new track began to circulate. This, too, very much cements TTR’s place as bright lights on an underground scene. You can hear ‘World’s Away’ in full via the Soundcloud link provided below. [Watch the video clip for ‘Sleep’ here.]
