Liverpool/London collective TOKKY HORROR are pleased to announce ‘Girlracer: The Remixes’, a four track EP featuring all-new versions of their debut single ‘Girlracer’.
The EP is out now via Alcopop! Records on all good DSPs and features cuts from friends of the band including Gullyteen, Dan Larkin, Phonewifey, and Bobby Starchild, with four additional remixes from Space, A.P.a.T.t, SIT DOWN and Zee Davine available exclusively on bandcamp.
The band make their first ever DJ set appearance from the M & S Bank Arena in Liverpool on 29th August 2020 for the Liverpool Digital Music Festival, and fans can livestream the performance at 7.30pm GMT on the LDMF website: https://www.ldmfestival.co.uk/
The trio also recently confirmed and announced their first ever full band live appearance for 20th March 2021 at Birkenhead’s brand new Future Yard venue, as covered by NME last month. Tickets are on sale now: https://futureyard.seetickets.com/
Commenting on the remix release, producer Zee Davine says: “We’re from a scene where everyone is a producer, DJ, or band, so it just made sense to let our friends have some fun with the single. A lot of remix culture now is about the business and furthering your own name, cashing in off each other’s fanbases. We wanted to just take it back to community and enjoyment. It was a way to connect with our scene while raves and live music are banned for the foreseeable future.”
On the original version of the single, vocalist Mollie Rush explains: “I wanted to challenge the gender binary in a minimal way by expressing my attraction to the boy racer aesthetic. Since I was a kid I’ve always wanted aerofoils, subwoofers, LEDs and loud cars. I’ve always felt a connection to that and I just want everyone to know that these things are not reserved for cis lads in trackies. Be whoever you want, drive your gorgeous Citroën saxo and make people feel weird.”
TOKKY HOROR will be revealing further details and announcing more new music over the coming months.
