Birds Of Tokyo

Biography

It's no secret that the landscape of Birds Of Tokyo's home of Western Australia; a desert-like state so vast and unforgiving that to provide it with a soundtrack requires a higher level of grandeur and majesty one would ever dare associate with the 'pop' music tag.

But, down to its bones, pop music is what Birds of Tokyo write... they just layer those bones in muscle, and give the beast a heart.

Beautifully expressive in its texture, yet thick and rich in its deceptive simplicity; Birds Of Tokyo's music is universal and incredibly humanistic. In what could be described as the blink of an eye, the band have struck a nerve in their homeland, giving way to an unprecedented rise to popularity, but it is in their blossoming international recognition can be seen the band's true strength and ability to connect with people.

And, at the end of the day, that's why we make music to begin with... to connect with one another, convey and share emotions and expression, and bring ourselves closer to understanding how truly rare and precious we all are.

Though some things have changed over the years, Birds Of Tokyo have been smart enough to avoid trends, instead focusing on what seems to be a long-lost strategy: write great songs, then put them out. Seems simple really.

Since the release of their sophomore album 'Universes', it's been a non-stop ride for Birds Of Tokyo. A number #3 album debut, a GOLD record, two sold out national tours, three songs in the prestigious TRIPLE J HOTTEST 100, a main stage slot on the national BIG DAY OUT festival and countless glowing reviews of their album and live shows.
