FEW Shorts: taffy

taffy were one of our featured bands recently and hold the honour of being our most liked post of 2015. (989 likes so far!) – see the post here containing a nice taster of their sound


We’ve followed up with them to get an insight into their influences. The band, based in Tokyo, consist of Iris (VocalGuitar), Asano (Guitar), Koichin (Bass), Ken (Drums). Iris kindly answered a few questions for us, and we’ve put together a playlist based on those as well as a few more taffy tracks not in the first feature.

FEW: What was the first tune you loved?

Iris: All the Christmas songs!!! Isn’t it amazing how we all know most of the Christmas songs?

FEW: What is your favourite song that you’ve written?

Iris: My favourites are HaaH from the first one (Caramel Sunset), and Young Tines from the latest one (Darkle).

FEW:  Name a song/piece of music by another artist that you would love to have written.

Iris: God Only Knows by The Beach Boys

FEW: What artist has influenced you the most?

Iris: um…Maybe The Beatles??

FEW: Name a song that makes you smile?

Iris: Any song that gives my heart glee,,,ha ha.

Thank you Iris!
