You guys are better than Tokyo guys, for sure


Malgré la croyance populaire, Tokyo ne se trouve pas toujours au Japon. Aujourd'hui, on retrouve par exemple les We Are Tokyo du côté de Bristol en Angleterre, pour un cours de rock éléctronique en compagnie de la voix de Tom Smith (d'Editors) mélangée à celle de Brandon Flowers (de The Killers) sur certains titres, avec même quelques intonations de Kele Okereke (de Bloc Party) sur certains autres. Un bain rafraîchissant de musique anglo-saxonne, qui commence par un accord de guitare qui me fait vibrer sur Colour Blind. Vous allez trouver ça "trop" mais je pense que ce morceau est une petite tuerie. Jugez par vous-même.

In spite of what everybody on Earth is thinking, Tokyo isn't always in Japan. Today, as an example, we meet the We Are Tokyo next to Bristol, England, for a lesson of electronic rock with a touch of Tom Smith's voice (leader-singer from Editors) and another of Brandon Folwers' one (leader-singer from The Killers) on a few tracks, and even a bit of Kele Okereke's accent (leader-singer from Bloc Party) on other ones. A fresh dive into British music, which begins with a guitar riff making me mad on Colour Blind. You could find it "too much" but I think this track is awesome. Judge by yourself.








We Are Tokyo - Colour Blind

XY n'est pas mal non plus dans son genre, avec son synthé grésillant et ses paroles semi-érotiques, c'est comme The XX mais avec une fille en moins quoi... Après tout pourquoi pas, le résultat est un morceau qui se démarque en compagnie de Colour Blind sur l'EP Bright Lights sorti en mai 2009.

XY is not so bad, with this synth sound and these half-erotics lyrics, it's like hearing The XX but without a girl and with one more boy... Why not, the result is a pretty good track on the Bright Lights EP released last Spring.








We Are Tokyo - XY

En parlant d'EP justement, ils ont sorti leur second, The Best In Me, il y a un peu plus d'un mois. Le morceau éponyme est bien, sans plus, mais je préfère de loin la face B, Tangram, celle-là justement où j'entend quelques accents de Kele Okereke, beaucoup plus posée que les premières compos du groupe. La 3e partie de ce second EP est un remix de XY par les We Are Kyoto, ce qui me permet d'ajouter quelques mots sur l'ingéniosité du groupe qui se remixe lui-même tout en changeant de lieu de résidence! Ça c'est très fort.

Dealing with EPs, they have released a second one late September 2009, called The Best In Me. The one I prefer on this EP is the B-face, Tangram, the one where I hear a bit of Kele Okereke's accent, much more calm than others compositions of the band. The third part of this second EP is a remix of XY from the We Are Kyoto. What a brillant band! They remix their own stuff just by exchanging letters! They're so strong.
