Japan’s finest purveyors of shoegaze tinged indie pop, Taffy, are back with their fourth album, the intriguingly titled Nyctophilia (A preference for the night or darkness).
Nyctophilia showcases everything you could want from a Taffy record, but with a subtle difference. “I always write the songs as singles” explains singer Iris, “but for this album, for the first time, I wrote songs just to be part of the album”, and this is evident upon first listen. This album builds on the bands atmospheric guitar work and noise-rock sound, all the while showcasing their renowned dreamy, sugar-sweet songwriting under-pinned by Graham Coxon-esque 90’s guitar riffs.
We have a stream of the full album for you ahead of it’s release tomorrow (April 7th) through the legendary Club AC30 label, pre-order it here. Treat your ears.
