Inspired by love, his new home in Brooklyn, and the great Paul Simon, Dave Monks of Tokyo Police Club is working for the first time on his own.
Although things with Tokyo Police Club recently have been quiet, Dave Monks attributes his confidence to step out an play on his own from their live shows. Lately things with the band have been “No mics, no PA, a quiet room… a really cool, intimate, conversational moment with the crowd”. It’s this style that Monks’ solo work is inspired by.
With a six-song EP on the way, Monks has just released his second single entitled “The Rules”. Take a listen below:
