Little Rock, Arkansas duo joan are only on single number three, but have carved out a nice little niche for themselves already with their retro-sounding but forward-thinking alt-pop. 'tokyo' is no different in its throwback 80s groove and simplistic lyrics about the electric charge in a physical human connection. The joy comes from the leap from the intimate verses into the power-pop chorus which sees our singer dreaming of taking his magnetic attraction around the world, starting with "the first flight to Tokyo."

Popping drums and sparkling synths give 'tokyo' a three dimensional and tactile joy that carries out the unabashed attraction with a heartwarming earnestness. Overall, it's the kind of song that might at first be a "guilty pleasure," until you've played it for the tenth time and you realise it is just a fantastic jam, no guilt necessary. Listen below.
