Birds Of Tokyo
It's no secret that the landscape of Birds Of Tokyo's home of Western Australia; a desert-like state so vast and unforgiving that to provide it with a soundtrack requires a higher level of grandeur and majesty one would ever dare associate with the 'pop' music tag.
But, down to its bones, pop music is what Birds of Tokyo write... they just layer those bones in muscle, and give the beast a heart. Beautifully expressive in its texture, yet thick and rich in its deceptive simplicity; Birds Of Tokyo's music is universal and incredibly humanistic. In what could be described as the blink of an eye, the band have struck a nerve in their homeland, giving way to an unprecedented rise to popularity, but it is in their blossoming international recognition can be seen the band's true strength and ability to connect with people.
Their latest offering, self titled BIRDS OF TOKYO is an album that carries with it the weight of one man’s world… the entire emotional gamut of a love lost, and the broken heart it left in its wake; set to music of depth and complexity. And it is this journey into such deeply personal territory that makes this the band’s most resonant album, because broken hearts are universal and timeless.
