Single Review – Taffy – Dr. K

Taffy are an Indie Pop quartet from Tokyo and are a band fast gaining attention in the U.K after the release of their third studio album last year and have made a quick return with a new EP called Darkie. The Shoegaze influenced extended play has received a wealth of praise from the Guardian to BBC Radio 6 Music who named one of their new tracks; Dr. K as their track of the day. This track features the maintained waves of distortion that rise and fall according to the rapidity of the percussion. With light and sweet melodies of the vocals in isolation from the instrumentation, it results in a direct and succinct track. A different and more aggressive variant on the genre provided from their Russian counterparts Pinkshinyultrablast, but one just as enjoyable.
