TOKKY HORROR Announce ‘Girlracer: The Remixes’ EP Out Now

28th August 2020

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’. 

Stream and share: https://backl.ink/142786431

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.”

Written and recorded by TOKKY HORROR, ‘Girlracer’ was produced and mixed by Zee Davine, and mastered by Stephen Cole at WHAT STUDIO, Liverpool. Released earlier this summer, the single picked up spins from Tom Robinson at BBC 6music, John Kennedy at Radio X, BBC introducing, Hoxton Radio and a host of digital specialist shows.

The track also received national press support from CLASH, Discovered Magazine and UPSET magazine, and coverage from Get In Her Ears, When The Horn Blows, Listen With Monger, Popoptica, Bring The Noise, Bido Lito, Planet Slop and many more blogs, zines and regional music mags.

TOKKY HOROR will be revealing further details and announcing more new music over the coming months.
