Tokyo Incidents Essentials

Tokyo Incidents Essentials

Toyko Incidents aka Tokyo Jihen had plenty of tricks up their sleeve, with artist Ringo Sheena's idiosyncratic songwriting and chameleonic performance blending with several instrumentalists to form a vivid, dynamic sound. In less than a decade, they released six albums—rotating alt-rock riffs, funky grooves, heady jazz and soul undertones. 2010's Sports mingled synth-pop and syncopated guitars. Meanwhile, on elegantly nostalgic single "Onnanoko Wa Dare Demo", from 2011's Dai Hakken, the chart-topping ensemble dabbles in big band swing.
