Sound it Out # 66: Tokyo Police Club - “Hot Tonight” (free MP3)
I must apologize in advance. This song is going to stick in your head, and it’s not going to leave you alone for a long time. It has wormed its way into my brain and literally kept me awake at night.
Toronto indie band Tokyo Police Club has always shown a strong a pop sensibility, but they’ve written a hit song of boy-band proportions with “Hot Tonight.” It’s the first single from their upcoming album Forcefield, most of which is rougher around the edges than this glossy ditty. You can pre-order the record at their Pledge Music page along with a bunch of fan-pleasing bundles.
We have a free download of “Hot Tonight” for two days only. Listen at your own risk.
