Graham Wright

Whether you recognize him from Tokyo Police Club or not, Graham Wright delivers a lasting impression on his debut solo album Shirts vs. Skins. Throughout the 12 tracks, the punk pop keyboardist broadens his horizons and takes on a whole new perspective of songwriting. Sort of a Bob Dylan meets Sam Roberts type disc, it delivers a thriving folky beat, giving Wright a chance to express his thoughts and ideals through his raspy, distinctive voice. Songs such as Soviet Race and Keys to the Kingdom test your music knowledge as he implies such intense melodic tone over a multitude of instruments that music buffs are sure to appreciate. With the Good Times Band accompanying him, this album will have you shakin’, boppin’ and twistin’ all the way to the record store, or at the very least, iTunes.
