Tokyo Police Club - Cheer It On

Fate has been smiling down on Tokyo Police Club since its conception in a suburban basement in greenbelt Toronto, Newmarket Ontario. First time round the band went the way of many and parted company. Yet, the experience of creating music together made such a lasting imprint on the quartet that only a few months later the draw became too great:- out of the ashes of their former line-up, Tokyo Police Club was born. And didn’t break up again, thankfully for us.

Seemingly on a mission to redefine Canada’s increasingly fruitful music scene (most noted for the likes of The Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene and Hidden Cameras), TPC are truly establishing their place at the vanguard of a new generation of bands rapidly coming to the fore

‘Cheer It On’ is the second single to be released from Tokyo Police Club’s debut long-player, ‘A Lesson In Crime’ and follows the single, ‘Nature Of The Experiment’. “Cheer It On” was originally written by TPC’s first incarnation and gave rise to their name, with the lines: “When you’re standing near – Tokyo Police Club!/ When you’re standing next to me – Tokyo Police Club!/ Lost in the pacific – I’m arresting you for being in love.” Which, according to the band, justifies the name in its own ridiculousness.
