Tomaki Jets – Fact or Fiction (mp3)
In recent years, the humble town of Frankston has been doing everything in it’s path to shake it’s bogan credentials. If the Tomaki Jets are part of a wave aiming to deplete connotations of mullet citizens, crack cocaine, hardcore bands and overbearing postcode proud paraphanelia associated with Frangas, then they’re on a roll.
Fact or Fiction is a contagious antidote with Tokyo Police Club trimmings on the side. The punch of this track is harnessed by it’s brisk energy. Backed up by melodic embellishments, sharp calls and dextrous drumming skills, the song has apt party presence but has the right amount of atmospheric, jewel-toned scuzz for long car trips. I’ll definitely be putting this one on the iPod for the long trek up to Splendour.
The single is being released on a compilation with other up and coming Mornington Peninsula bands The JSB’s, These Patterns and Cult Visions at The Toff on the 18th of July. I’ve heard swell things about Tomaki Jet’s live do’s from many. Check the gig out, and you might get the chance to barter for some I-Heart-Frankston merch.
