TOKYO TEA ROOM Unveil Hazy New Track ‘Things Are Changing’

Brilliantly visceral and evocative, the newest track from Tokyo Tea Room will almost lift you out of this world.

Tokyo Tea Room 2019Canterbury psych-pop sextet Tokyo Tea Room spin you out of this world with their latest single Things Are Changing. Having already amassed over 100,000 plays on Spotify for only their last two singles, there’s no doubt that this figure will rise with this newest release. A glimmering cut of lilting vocals and swaying harmonies, its gentility will guide you along with care. You’ll be entranced by dreamy electronics that unite with thrumming beats to create a catchy atmosphere, and the soaring melodies will lift you with its lightness. The lyricism explores the tugs of life, which push and pull us with its various pressures to mould us, but conceded that it’s okay if we aren’t the same as who we were before.

Speaking more of the track, primary songwriter Daniel Elliot explains:

‘Things Are Changing’ is about recognising yourself growing up, seeing yourself change and trying to find a balance. The lyrics are telling a story of someone discovering their own flaws, analysing them and moving forward.

The band also focuses on their aesthetic appeal, and have enlisted the help of Brighton-based visual artist InnerStrings for their upcoming music video, so watch this space for more on this.

You’ll be able to see the band live at Folkestone’s Quarterhouse on November 29th.
