LA Buzz Act Toyko Shares Their New Single and Throw in an Awesome Playlist

LA act Toyko has a talent for making affecting tracks that drive a chaos of reactions from mourning to dancing. This is definitely a buzz act to keep track of. While they will be releasing an EP sometime this summer, their single “Like What I Like” is called an “outcast anthem”. “I wanted something that speaks to everyone’s weird side and re-assures them to stay true to themselves – to live loud, and like what you like” – and I think we can all relate to that” says the artist behind the beats. We have the great privilege to share a playlist curated by them below, but first, check out the new single.

Bloc Party was one of our biggest influences when we first started Toyko. This song will ramp up your post-winter energies.

I listened the shit out of this album in high school. Although I’ve heard this song a million times I’ll never get sick of it.

We love all of NoMBe’s tracks, but this one screams springtime.  When the post chorus melody comes in I bet you’ll be rocking out.
