myspace band of the week

Taffy is an alternative/shoegaze band from Tokyo. Iris (vocals) and Koichin (bass) formed the band as Salt Water Taffy in the early 2000s after their previous bands had broken up. After years of lineup changes, the band name was shortened to taffy when Asano (guitar) and Ken (drums) joined last year. Taffy’s sound has often been compared to various Britpop acts with The Beatles being an obvious influence.

London based label Club AC30 has signed taffy and released their first album Caramel Sunset this week on vinyl and CD. You can read more about taffy’s focus on Britain at the Japan Times.
