Power Pop Meets Electropop on Tokyo Police Club’s “Forcefield”


If you’re in the mood for fun, poppy indie rock, check out “Forcefield,” the latest from Tokyo Police Club. Not surprisingly, their sound has shifted since their last release, 2010’s “Champ.” This new album feels a little lighter and more mature than the louder, slightly frenetic sound they crafted in their earlier work. The band has achieved an electro-pop-meets- power-pop type of sound and it really works. It’s almost like what you’d get if you crossed Passion Pit with The Strokes.

Standout tracks include the instantly catchy “Hot Tonight,” “Toy Guns,” and the more chill closing songs “Through The Wire,” and “Feel The Effect.”
