Tokyo Police Club's Dave Monks Shares New Song "Bluebird"
Published Jun 24, 2019After releasing TPC with Tokyo Police Club last year, frontman Dave Monks has delivered a new solo single.
Titled "Bluebird," the track marks the first solo material from Monks since 2015 EP All Signs Point to Yes, and it was recorded and produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, Kevin Devine).
"My two most-listened-to CDs in high school were Is This It and Kid A. 'Bluebird' feels like it lands right in the middle of those influences, it's personal and bluesy but also disguised and ambient," Monks said of the song in statement.
He continued: "I almost overlooked it because it's such a simple little song, but I recorded it on a whim Rob's studio one night after we were done something else. It was just one take, playing a keyboard and singing. I think you can feel in the song that I'm playing without a metronome or anything. Just floating around between the chord changes. Hope you can float with it too."
