Chicago-based four piece California Wives are debuting their new single “Tokyo” for mp3 download, as they prepare to tour down to SXSW for a number of performances. “Tokyo” was created in between different stages of the band’s writing process. Agreeing that it fit neither on their well received 2010 EP, Affair, or their forthcoming album, they decided it best to shine on its own.

Exploring their childhood musical backgrounds the band continues to summon their new wave influences incorporating it with their sound of indie pop and shoe gaze. Affair, mixed at Chicago’s famous Engine Music Studios (Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Iron and Wine), received much praise resulting in an early 2011 Daytrotter Session, and invitations to 2011 festivals including Chicago’s Tomorrow Never Knows Music Festival and several SXSW appearances. Be sure and catch the opportunity to see them live!
