Hello, Hello Tokyo

Just looking at Kat Kihler above should tell you she means business, never mind the two tough guys flanking her. The three of them make up Hello Tokyo, a Brooklyn band who just released their first full length album, Sell the Stars (they've released several EPs and singles before this year, which you can find on their website). It came out a couple of weeks ago, and it's pure, unadulterated power-pop (in case you didn't get enough with last night's song from Paging Grace). With spring firmly here, this album has been in my car and played loud with the windows finally down. Kat's voice really carries the day, even over her band mates. They've got the frenetic driving title track at one end (do your best Guitar Hero imitation to it below), the the chill-out grooved I Spy at the other, and more power pop than you can shake a stick at in between.

Visit their website and become their friend on MySpace.
