Apparently, Tokio Hotel have been around for ages. Well, eight years to be more precise, but they released their first English language album Scream only in 2005. For those who (like me) are still clueless about them, Tokio Hotel are a four-piece band from Magdeburg, Germany, who make some kickass music.
I first discovered them literally half an hour ago when I searched YouTube for Mad World and came across a Tokio Hotel video for the song. I don’t think that actually is a Tokio Hotel cover – the voice in the linked video sounded suspiciously like Gary Jules – but it made me watch some of their videos, and I am an instant fan! The band members range in age from 19 to 21 and are so talented that they perfectly exemplify why I started this blog.
You can listen to Monsoon, Ready Set Go, and By Your Side. For those who are feeling a little more adventurous, watch the original By Your Side in German – An Deiner Seite. And if anyone knows how I can get the album in India, please let me know!
