Tokyo Taboo set to release new single ‘Porno Star’ – out July 7th

Jun - 26 2014 | no comments

Tokyo Taboo are set to release ‘Porno Star’, the second single from the new EP was inspired by the lead singer Laura’s ex boyfriend, who, she claims, had an insatiable addiction to porn films.

‘He seemed to see me as a mother figure and everything fantasy driven sexual. He’d watch porn with me sat next to him and wasn’t the least bit interested in the real deal. I wrote Porno Star to question this split between virgin and whore. I wanted to be a fantasy girl with silicone body parts and be a bit of a bimbo rather than a real person. This seemed to be what turned him on.’

The video out on July 7th was shot in London with creative genius Adam Daniels. Nothing of the video was planned and is instead a voyeuristic view of the band, a POV of Tokyo Taboo. ‘It’s very seedy…There’s a real creepiness to the video…an unsettling feeling throughout with the naughtiness of me playing to the camera lightening the mood.’

Tokyo Taboo’s Laura and Mike, throwing hyperactive pop rock at you with tongue in cheek lyrics and blazing melodic hooks. After months of conception on June 9th their newborn baby “Porno Star” popped out, an upbeat, synth rock driven EP with high energy and anthemic hooks. Produced and arranged by Stereophonics’ producer/co-­‐ writer Jim Lowe, “Porno Star” showcases Tokyo Taboo at their best exploring themes of sex, freedom and ….more sex.

London based Tokyo Taboo blasted to earth in 2013 with the release of their pure pop debut EP “Naked” produced in Los Angeles by Adam Moseley (The Cure, Transvison Vamp and Roxette). This visit to the U.S. of A started off their American dream love affair, in particular with L.A., they found themselves playing live at The Viper Room, Whisky a Go Go and then flying onto N.Y.C. to perform at CMJ Music Marathon.
