Tokyo Police Club - Your English Is Good (Single)

First of all I would like to compliment this band on a fine name choice Tokyo Police Club rolls off the tongue nicely. Secondly the song, this is a feel good summer hit as the video likes to suggest. Its a song that celebrates youth by its very nature. Quick and sharp sounding its a bright beacon for the young and oppressed. Almost a My Generation for our generation. Sure its not quite at the same level as The Who's classic but its clearly the goal and its good to aim high. To my mind this young canadian band sound like a mixture between The Strokes and The Cribs particularly on this new single, which is no bad thing. While I didn't really enjoy their previous single, this is a lively and jubilant piece of songwriting that makes Tokyo Police Club an excellent prospect for the future.
