New single 'Girlracer' is out now...

Liverpool-London collective Tokky Horror have signed to Alcopop! Records for new single 'Girlracer'.

The project is led by Zee Davine, the iconoclast who shock up the industry with punk-edged project Queen Zee.

This new group opens up fresh possibilities, with Zee Davine joined by joint-vocalists Mollie Rush and Ava Akira.

A power trio, Tokky Horror is the sound of Zee returning "to the fun of creating and making music after falling out of love with it."

"The experience of creating Tokky Horror has helped me address what my priorities are with my creativity, and how I wish and need to express myself. Sonically we had no idea what we would sound like, except we wanted it to be intense, visceral and cathartic."

Inspired by the work of Refused frontman Dennis Lyxzen, and his call for a truly 21st century type of punk, Tokky Horror are reacting against the dystopian realm they find themselves in.

“I wanted to find my own sound, and my own way of expressing myself, that takes from all of our influences across dance culture, psychedelia and punk,” explains Davine.

“Lyrically the song addresses hyper-masculine spaces (which is very often dance culture itself) and inserts Tokky Horror with confidence. Girlracer's unashamed appreciation of fast cars and loud music is a tongue-in-cheek to every boy who thinks they're better than us."
