The playful Norwegian duo Put Your Hands up for Neo-Tokyo are hard to put a finger on. Their sound combines a whole host of disparate elements into constructions that are best described as “experimental pop music.” ”The Blood of Brethren” is one of these contraptions, and the PR release may help you understand what you are about to hear (and/or hearing) much better:
What’s so special about the duo is their ability to take introverted ideas about sound and morph and distort them into a extroverted pop music experience. Air guitar riffs, prog-rock chord progressions and sonic ideas from UK bass, hip-hop and house music joins together on the duo’s remembrance of youthful playfulness. Perhaps Put Your Hands up for Neo-Tokyo is the first mp3-player shuffle band.
