TAFFY UNVEIL VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “DD”
LIFTED FROM THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM
RELEASED APRIL 7TH VIA CLUB AC30
Critically acclaimed Japanese indie-pop four piece Taffy are back, unveiling the video for their new single “DD” - lifted from their fourth studio album, ‘Nyctophilia’, released April 7th on London’s premiere shoegaze and post rock label, Club AC30.
A swirl of transcendental melodies, new single ‘DD’ is a reverb-laden cacophony of fuzz bass and soaring, anthemic vocals backed with beautiful, psychedelic soundscapes. Tracks such as ‘Runic Wade’ and ‘Lavendery’ take a step away from layered guitar work and take a more delicate approach, with dynamic and spacious recordings that give center stage to Iris’ blissful and otherworldly vocals.
‘Nyctophilia’ showcases everything you could want from a Taffy record, but with a subtle difference. “I always write the songs as singles” explains singer Iris, “but for this album, for the first time, I wrote songs just to be part of the album”, and this is evident upon first listen. This album builds on the bands atmospheric guitar work and noise-rock sound, all the while showcasing their renowned dreamy, sugar-sweet songwriting under-pinned by Graham Coxon-esque 90’s guitar riffs.
The album name displays a certain continuity with their lauded 2015 EP, ‘Darkle’ conveying feelings of darkness and love for the night, almost in direct contrast to the band’s bright, shimmering sound.
‘Nyctophilia’ is released on April 7th on London alternative label Club AC30, who have had recent success with bands such as Pinkshinyultrablast, Fever Dream and Ringo Deathstarr.
