You Better believe OK Tokyo

According to Reading, England band OK Tokyo, their music is “pyrotechnic-enhanced powerpop for the new generation.”  Maybe, but wasn’t Matt Mahaffey (“I’m a fan of both poppy melodies and not-so-poppy sounds”) doing this a decade ago?  The band’s first single, “You Better Believe It’ has sparked a bevy of reviews in the British press and it’s an admittedly catchy tune.  Aside from NME, they have also been a “New Band of the Day” (#295) in The Guardian. Once again, another British indie band is hoping to get the kids to the dance floor.    Justin Timberlake apparently calls them the “future.”  With that, what’s left for me to write?  Check ’em out.

    Props for incorporating a Mahaffey quote. Dance-pop seems to be where it’s at today. It seems like a logical way to get indie kids to groove on the dancefloor I suppose. However, I predict it’s all being done in an attempt to move closer to disco-like sounds of the ’70’s. It will pop soon. Just wait and see.

    The remixed version of “You Better Believe It” on their Myspace page is strong.

    Yeah, I’ve too decided the remix version is better. I guess it’s my recent Hot Chip listening!
