Witterings from an old indie kid
Until recently Danish indiepop act Tampopo was the work of just the one individual but since last November they have become a fully fledged band. Unless I am mistaken Atompop is their first release with this new line up. Given I have not listened to a Tampopo release since 2017s Ketchup! I was wondering what to expect. Well what I didn’t expect was how good this EP would be! Sounding like The Monochrome Set, The Loft, Television Personalities and 14 Iced Bears (check out She Blows It! for that last reference) amongst others these tracks just radiate and tug at my post-punk indie and C86 heartstrings. The songs are catchy, melodic indie/janglepop and the backing vocals work amazingly well especially on Swordfish. Grab this one right now.
