"Fuzzed-up pop gems. Guitar buzzes like a toy chainsaw over which Iris's angelic voice glides effortlessly" The Japan Times.
Caramel Sunset is the debut album from Tokyo four-piece taffy, who channel the best bits of fuzztone bubblegum pop, shoegaze, and psych, with just a dash of Britpop. They are Iris (vocal, rhythm guitar) Koichin (bass) Asano (lead guitar) and Ken (drums).
From the Echobelly-meets Ramones of '=3,' the Throwing Muses-esque 'Canary', the classic Creation records-style 'Indetermination' to the angular-pogo of 'Flower Chain', 'Caramel Sunset' is a charming distillation of the band's quality record collections. Not content with simply wearing their influences on their sleeve, these brilliantly-crafted songs are delivered with taffy's own idiosyncratic panache: recent single 'So Long' has "indie disco anthem" written all over it.
