Toph Taylor is a 28-year old South Londoner that performs under the moniker Trouble Over Tokyo, merging indie electronica and pop with modern R&B, thus becoming the hit of the Austrian indie scene! Issued by Klein label (based in Vienna), Pyramides is the album of a genius: an improbable number of ideas swirling into each song, it is self-penned, self performed (apart from singing he plays guitars, pianos, strings and drum machines) and self produced - he did the artwork and package design too! He sounds like Justin Timberlake through Thom Yorke and Mika, but, most importantly, he sounds like himself. My favourite track by far is the dramatic 4,228, sung with Millie Blue (who has performed with Basement Jaxx). With the wealth of ideas and influences found in this album, it is a wonder he has not self-combusted yet. A treat for your mind and ears, please listen to this LOUD!
