Toyko has followed the addictive debut of “Ghost Pepper” with the alt-pop apology “Stronger Love”, an electronically laced track which translates forms of pleading for forgiveness into colorful sonic patterns. From the sincere piano-led opening to the passionate chorus where the vocal fills with sheer emotion, “Stronger Love” has a sense of real pop power and that’s because it’s based on a vivid personal experience.
“Stronger Love came after a night of heavy drinking and a bunch of poor decisions. Come the next morning, I knew I had hurt someone I care for deeply and wrote this song as a cry for forgiveness. It’s funny cause when I hear the song now it feels empowering, fun and uplifting but when I was writing the lyrics I was actually in a pretty dark place. I never set out to make a track like this, just sat down agenda-less and let raw emotion run its course.”
