Tokyo Tea Room is a psych-pop outfit formed by Canterbury natives Daniel Elliott and Ben Marshall – on guitar and bass respectfully – who are joined by four of close pals; on vocals and keys, Beth Plumb, on drums, Sam Teather, on guitar, Ryan Debling and on synth, Graham Nunn.
This fellowship of friends opened their 2019 account with imaginative and colourful psychedelic pop song ‘Forever Out of Time’, and they are following that with lush slice of dreamy escapism ‘Always Tomorrow’. A beautiful and woozy cut of gently undulating psych-pop – ‘Always Tomorrow’ is utterly divine. Worming its way inside you head with a smooth and intoxicating groove and seductive bassline, drowned in reverb and flanger, Plumb‘s vocals are simultaneously soothing and melancholic amid the gently whirling haze. Tender and beautiful, it drifts elegantly by with a dreamlike atmosphere and melodic shimmering haze.
‘Always Tomorrow’ is utterly beautiful – tune in below:
