Tokyo Tea Room + Special Guests
Melting Vinyl are pleased to present lo-fi psych-pop outfit Tokyo Tea Room – having graced the stage at Folkestone Quarterhouse for This is Psych earlier this year, Tokyo Tea Room are back for their first headline show to mark the launch of their as-yet-untitled EP on A Certain Kind Records.
Formed in 2014, Tokyo Tea Room are the psych pop lovechild of Canterbury natives Daniel Elliott and Ben Marshall. They have shared bills with the likes of Wolf Alice, The Mystery Jets and Super Furry Animals.
With Daniel on guitar and Ben on bass, the duo is joined by four of their closest friends and fellow musicians: Beth Plumb on vocals and keys, Sam Teather on drums, Ryan Debling on guitar and Graham Nunn on synth. Expect a meeting of melodic bass lines, hypnotic guitar riffs and dreamy synths for Tokyo Tea Room’s unique honeyed psychedelia sound with a soulful personality.
The band have started a new chapter this year, releasing two singles in rapid succession, ‘Forever Out of Time’ and ‘Always Tomorrow’. The response has been phenomenal, with widespread support ranging from BBC Introducing, to BBC 6Music, Fresh On The Net, Amazing Radio, The Line Of Best Fit, Spotify and David Dean Burkhart, a very influential taste maker for Psych Pop. A third single, ‘Things Are Changing’, is scheduled for release in September.
