Stay Strong – TOKOLOSH

Stay Strong

Laced with Liam’s distinctive vocals and evocative lyricism, the band’s darkly magical sound combines soul, R&B and tribal rhythms underscored by Nathan’s driving bass.” Skiddle

“Matching a sensitive use of electronics to crunching riffs.” Clash Music

A product of Manchester’s collaborative music scene, Tokolosh are a 5-piece collective featuring members of The Whip and The Earlies alongside solo artist Liam Frost.

Named after a mischievous Zulu water sprite, the band blend aggressive drumming with darkly sexual lyrics, creating a unique and addictive sound which is complemented by artwork from Vaughan Oliver and Marc Atkins, known for their work with the 4AD label.

Featured in The Guardian and Clash Music and championed by Marc Riley and Gideon Coe (6 Music) and John Kennedy (XFM), the album promises to cause a ripple in their native north west of England.

Tokolosh have supported the likes of I am Kloot and will be announcing some tour dates later in the summer when they return from various projects, and re-unite once more in Manchester to play the new album in full.

Debut album, Stay Strong will be released 4th August on Jack to Phono Records. It features the singles ‘Bloodlines’, ‘Shapeshifter’ and ‘A Great Wave’.
