SBD presents: TOKYO TABOO
Friday May 8th
Riotous rockers Tokyo Taboo have built quite a reputation for their spectacular, character driven, and often shocking vibrant live performances. With glowing comparisons to Deap Vally, Halestorm, and Juliette & The Licks, Tokyo Taboo have dropped their latest single ‘Whiskey’.
Composed of the feisty and ferocious pair Dolly Daggerz and Mickey Danger, the Londoner’s debut album, ‘6th Street Psychosis’, brought them acclaim from the likes of Radio X’s John Kennedy, BBC Radio 1, Planet Rock, Clash and Punktastic. The duo have been hard at work on their upcoming album, recorded in California by Noah Shain. Their second album showcases how diligently the band has honed their sound since their debut, developing musical layers and refining production to create something utterly unique.
‘Whiskey’ is a raw personal lament on Dolly's tumultuous relationship with alcohol, rages with the band’s trademark ferocity as whirring hooks race alongside tremendous beats. The immense power of front-woman Dolly’s vocals married with Guitarist Mickey Danger’s riotous riffs blast into your ears, propelling the track forward at break-neck speed.
The band has played a number of UK festivals, including Rebellion, Great British Alternative Fest, Camden Rocks, Byline Festival, and Hard Rock Hell.
