MY PLAYLIST // TOKYO AND ROSE
Ever wondered what music your favourite band listens too? What songs inspire the best songwriters?
In this feature we'll speak to some of HOT VOX's favourite new artists on the gigging scene, to find out what songs shaped them to be the musicians they are today and what's on their spotify playlist!
Today’s playlist is curated by Jamie, Pitt and Mahnoor from the band Tokyo and Rose!
Who are Tokyo and Rose?
Tokyo and Rose are an alternative rock band consisting of vocalist Jamie Fabian-Hunt, guitarist Mahnnoor Pirzada and drummer Pitt Vitheethum. The band was formed when Pitt and Jamie found common interest in rock music at school. They then met Mahnoor at university which solidified their sound.
For those that don’t know your band, describe your act in just a few sentences...
We take groovy inspirations from Queens of the Stone Age; the heaviness from Royal Blood, Muse with even some haunting pianos from Radiohead.
