Following on from the debut single “Spellbound”, Tokyostreetgang have added two more gang members to the group. While spellbound was the male point of view on relationships and breakups, Julia Deans moody yet sultry Blondie-esque style vocals capture and embody a females perspective perfectly. Also joining the gang is Teia Williams, bass player for UK indie dance band “spektrum”. Complete with remixes from Computers want me dead, Greg Churchill, Dan Aux and Spike Mozeley, (Better known as the Australian based Kiwi Drum & Bass producer Consequence).

Ian Brown is a graduate student and has done an incredible job, im so happy with the out come and i hope that other NZ musicians will also try this option for their music video. Thanx Ian, Ash, Jason & everyone involved, it was one of the most fun videos to make, you guys rule..!” – Tiki
