New Tokyo Police Club: "Hot Tonight"

As if I need one more thing to encourage my longing for summer (the amount of sunshiney daydreaming I've been doing is unhealthy), Tokyo Police Club just released the first uppity pop-rock single from their forthcoming album Forcefield - and it will be perfect or blaring on those far-away dog days.

The Canadian indie-rock outfit have nailed the young person's summer experience through sugary guitar, mention of perching on hot curbs, drinking in the park and dirty sneakers. All of these ingredients combined have me positive we'll see this single resurface the first time Toronto's temperature climbs into the teens.

Enjoy the cold! Oh, and here's a fun fact: About seven years ago, Tokyo Police Club were the first band I ever interviewed.
