Tokyo Police Club Elephant Shell Music Review

“Tokyo Police Club” is a four-member Canadian indie-rock band from new market, Ontario. Tokyo Police Club was founded in 2005 and includes Dave Monks (vocals and bass), Josh Hook (guitar), Graham Wright (keyboards) and Greg Alsop (drums). Their music genres are mainly indie rock, garage rock and post-punk revival.

Elephant Shell has a good opening “Centennial”. Within a few seconds of opening, a faulty robot voice is heard. The robot may be stuck somewhere or stuck, I thought to myself. Soon a dragging keyboard and Dave Monks came in. Centennial isn’t a fast-paced track, but guitar and bass seem to be working out. The bridge joins the keyboard with a flick of the hand, just in for a moment. And this may be one of Centennial’s best moments. In the end, I like Dave Monks, who says, “I only wish you well, even though you don’t believe me, next Thursday night is our 100th anniversary …” and it’s won by a wedding-like keyboard. A brief introduction, but I’m sure I’ll learn more about the Tokyo Police Club.

“In A Cave” begins with a guitar that comes from afar

 Before joining the In A Cave bass line. Before Dave’s income, the music is already very good. Speaking of the chorus where Dave goes again, “All my hair is growing in, the wrinkles are leaving my skin, but still, don’t fade … I’ll be back again in a few days …”, the keyboard enters unexpectedly and in the background you can hear how the rest of the Tokyo Police Club helped Dave. The second verse gets even louder with guitar and bass, but somehow it’s not loud. It still sounds light and effortless. The best bet for In A Cave is definitely the remaining 1 minute after the second chorus. Dave just stretches his things, “Elephant box, you’re in my cave and I’m hiding, are you telling me a little about yourself, a little about yourself?” and he is joined by the guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards that play in the notes we first heard. Only this time will the Tokyo Police Club add magic to it! Tokyo Police Club impressive stuff here!

According to Graves, it sounds like a horror script.

“Tessellate” is initially a guitar with a high and sharp sound. As Dave 풀싸롱 every phrase in the verse, keyboards with memorable ingredients come at the right time to make sure we, as listeners, have a good time listening to Tessellate. In the choir, Dave sings with his already familiar voice: “… Dead lovers are salivating, broken hearts are tessellating today …” The Tokyo Police Club is showing some effort here, adding hand claps to Dave’s voice. The real thing about Tessellate is definitely the sound of the keyboard, which can’t always get my attention because it’s too good. And at times it sounds like a piano. Now I just can’t get that voice out of my head of a urdu voice over artist.
