Bank TRUE TEMPO Vinyl Record
Cool, sophisticated, and melodically funky pop from Japan, recorded in 2014/'15. Six irresistible songs from veteran members of '90s Tokyo underground pop bands like Love Tambourines, Arch, and Bridge, all influenced by the Tokyo neo-acoustic scene as well as early club music like acid jazz, rare groove, and early techno and mentored by Kenji Takimi of Crue-L Records. Bank formed in 2006 and have been assiduously honing their sound since then, distilling an elegant brew compounded of '80s dance music, the funkier elements of post-punk and the Factory Records roster, and other groups such as Young Marble Giants, Weekend, and Duran Duran. A consummate blend. Vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Dai Nakamura is joined by guitarist Nobuyuki Ohashi, keyboardist Tadashi Kitami, bassist Fumio Hirami, and drummer Bo Suzuki. The latter two are a key part of Bank's charm, with Hirami's funky bass laid over Suzuki's YMO-inspired grid-style drums. But make no mistake; these are true songs, not mere rhythmic exercises. Featuring memorable melodies, heavenly harmonies, and attractive arrangements, these songs were mixed and mastered by Tomoki Kanda, a renowned member of the shibuya-kei scene.
