The new Tokyo Police Club song “Tunnel Vision” sees the Canadian indie rock band adding new elements to their trademark sound -- a synth-based pop edge. If you're not doing new things you're falling behind, right? Tokyo Police Club is pushing that envelope on their new album Forcefield, which arrives on March 25 via Mom+Pop (US), Dine Alone (CA), and March 24 via Memphis Industries (UK).
“Since writing started for Forcefield in mid-2011 there have been so many trends and every kind of ‘wave.’ We saw them all come and disappear or change into something broader. It left us wanting to make something that would last. We ended up rediscovering energy and guitars and simple, direct songs. There was certainly a lot of pressure to take the music somewhere new and there were lots of opinions about how to do that, but in the end we blocked all that out and followed our instincts. I think that’s what Forcefield is—it doesn’t matter what else is going on out there, the music just has to be honest and have a real feeling to it,” said TPC singer and bassist David Monks.
