London's Ample Play Records bring us this great new track from Tokyo duo Yokan System which has been described as early Human League meets Cocteau Twins. Get the lowdown, gig dates, and then download 'Klee' for free.
"'Klee' taken from the 'Yokan Teresa' single out 9th February. Yokan means premonition in Japanese, and they know the system. The duo quote Warpaint, Björk and Blonde Redhead as some of their influences. After self-releasing an EP in Japan, which did exceedingly well on college radio, they were immediately picked up by Ample Play - their first single ‘A Dream You Never Wake Up From’ came out in November, after which they went touring in the USA.
