Tokky Horror have released a video for their new single Simulate Me, out now via Alcopop! Records.
The track sees Tokky Horror draw influence from Atari Teenage Riot‘s concept of ‘digital hardcore’, as producer Zee Davine explains: “ATR were showing punk must always be at the forefront of innovation. It might look backwards to do that, but culturally, politically, and musically it must move forward. ‘Simulate Me’ was about creating an aggressive sound in a modern, virtual way. If punk is about back to basics, it doesn’t get any more basic than just me and a synthesizer.
“I saw a piece recently that said there have been two great ages in technology, the mechanical and the digital, and we are now entering the third: the virtual. The lockdowns that have been a result of the Coronavirus pandemic have pushed all our lives, including relationships, into a more virtual space. That’s what Tokky Horror is; a virtual band. With ‘Simulate Me’ we wanted to ask what the virtual age will look like for love and sex.”
