‘Tokyo’ official music video – Chimpanbee – 12th August 2018

Tokyo is the  first single from the album. ‘Can’t Stop or Rewind’ which I have previously reviewed on this site. On first hearing, it is reminiscent of early Oasis but with a gentleness that Oasis lacked. The tune becomes an ear worm  on second and third listenings and the accompanying song narrative perfectly enhances the video.Shot in black and white,moody, rain soaked streets and a  backstreet pub contain clever film references, the most dominant of which is ‘singin’ in the rain’, without the singing! It’s been well thought out and the story of the contrast between hard graft in a pub while dreaming of the magic of dance leading to the perfect relationship, might seem as old as time but here feels completely fresh and inevitable.
