Based on my impression with “Crystal Beat….Dance“, the band is a hipster’s match made in heaven. Playing out the rock star image down from head to toe – if looks could be the judge for music quality, my bets would be on them. But the truth of the matter is that I cannot help but feel lukewarm towards their music.
In essence, Tookoo’s music strikes a delicate balance between the electro beats of The Killers and the garage rock aesthetic of The Strokes. The quality of the music is consistent to the aforementioned bands, covering all bases from having a handsome and enigmatic front man to writing simple and catchy guitar lines.
