To say Matt Bellamy of Muse is a fan of your work is quite an achievement, certainly something you’d want to put in a bigger font on a CV. Couple that with working with renowned producer Paul Reeve (Muse, Razorlight, Supergrass) and you’re definitely on to something worthy of attention; and Token Joker’s latest offering certainly is that.
Ride The Train, which you can stream below, is taken off their forthcoming EP, due for release on April 27th. The Devon based rockers have forged a three and a half minute angry blast that muddles through all sorts of influences to create their own sound – comparisons could be made to everyone from Foo Fighters to Arctic Monkeys. Punchy percussion backs up the staccato vocal work, in turn melting into hazy and distorted riffs, ever changing and creating a strong sense of depth.
