With a band name like Tokyo Police Club, you'd think they had at least one thing to back it up. You know, like they're club hoppers or something. But no member is from Tokyo, none are former police officers, and their music is far from fit for the club.
Their slowish, dreamy indie pop is more conducive to nursing a Sunday hangover and getting over a case of the Monday's than staying out until the wee hours in the midst of oonst oonst oonsting. And we're totally okay with that. But that isn't stopping them from making another trip down to the Sunshine State, anyway.
The foursome opened for Passion Pit this summer at the Fillmore Miami Beach, and while their performance seemed to be injected with a caseload of Four Loko, they still lacked any real club connection. We're here to remedy that. We've found five of our favorite "club remixes" of Tokyo Police Club hits. Check them out after the jump.
