At last making the sort of impact they deserve in the UK, Tokyo Police Club took to the stage for one of their biggest London shows in front of a packed crowd at Heaven. With their tracks now dispersed across TV and radio galore, Tokyo Police Club’s flooding of the public subconscious has been steady, but it’s now really starting to pick up pace.

After voicing their pleasure about returning to England’s capital and tearing into their set with a mixture of new tracks and oldies from their debut EP, when Graves and Tessellate soon hit, the crowd were more than getting into it. Newfound favourites End Of A Spark and Hands Reversed had onlookers shouting back every word before Favourite Food and Big Difference really got everyone moving.

It had been another sterling performance from the Canadian four-piece, playing every track like it was their last, and when it finally came to close out their set, Your English Is Good stood up to the mark. Hopefully the boys will be back again next year, and feature heavily on the festival circuit, because if it’s until album three comes around, there are going to be a lot of feverish fans, growing less patient by the day.
