Tokyo Denmark Sweden
Sydney trio, Tokyo Denmark Sweden, burst onto the scene late last year and have since blazed an electro-pop trail into the hearts and minds of indie dance fanciers around Australia. After the success of their debut single, Little Quarters, their latest tune, When It Breaks, has been added to triple j, Unearthed and Radar as well as receiving love on community radio stations like ours around the nation.
I caught up with Tom from the band to discuss the Sydney music scene, life on the road and the upcoming tour dates.
Sydneysiders can catch Tokyo Denmark Sweden at Peat’s Ridge over the New Year or at the Beresford on the 6th Jan.
For more things Tokyo Denmark Sweden head their facebook page to find out more, and tune into the Walk of Shame next week on Bondi fm to hear their sounds.
Interview was first broadcast on the Saturday Walk of Shame 8th December 2012. Recorded live in a phone conversation at Rose Bay Beach, NSW.
Go ahead – Like the shit out of it!
