TeenagersInTokyo exclusively release LP for Record Store Day‏

In support of independent UK music, indie label Back Yard Recordings will release 500 advance copies of TEENAGERSINTOKYO’s debut album ‘Sacrifice’ to selected indie stores across the UK.

On April 17th, 150 independent record shops across the UK – will throw open their doors to celebrate Record Store Day. The aim is to highlight the continuing contribution of indie stores to UK music, and to celebrate the day organisers have worked with record labels to secure over 100 exclusive items which will only be available through participating Record Store Day stores.

‘Sacrifice’ was recorded at Bryn Derwen studios deep in the welsh countryside with Faultline mainman and twice Mercury Prize nominated Bat For Lashes producer David Kosten. Drawing together the most exciting subterranean music of the past thirty years the result sees sinister, crawling synths marry pulsing rhythms and screaming guitars.

In a short space of time TEENAGERSINTOKO have come from nothing to headlining the launch of The Great Escape, selling out venues across the UK, bagging support from the likes of Zane Lowe, XFM and the NME; and most recently topping the Hype Machine chart with The Horrors remix of ‘Peter Pan’.

Following the celebrated release of their self-titled EP in 2008 the band caught everyone’s attention, landing themselves international acclaim, support slots with CSS, The Slits & Gossip, a record deal with Backyard and a move to the other side of the world. The result is debut album ‘Sacrifice’; an album that promises delight, thick in imagery, where landscapes and fire dominate the pastoral gloom. The bass is tar thick, the drums edgy and jittering, the guitars sharp and slicing. And caught in the centre, singer Samantha Lim’s veneer of fragile innocence fractures and collapses to allow glimpses to the turmoil beneath. It’s a crooked shadow racing for the dancefloor with its knives drawn.

TEENAGERSINTOKYO are poised to take their place amongst the art-pop new wave; now sultry shimmerscapes like ‘3046’ and deviant dancefloor destroyers like ‘Talk To The Fire’ and ‘End It Tonight’ are set to draw back the curtain on a more opulent Big Picture. Prepare to be dazzled, blackened, bewitched.
