Tyranny of Love
Tyranny of Love rock band is based in Toronto Canada and has a sound musically compared with the B52s meets The Doors. This 4 piece rock band combines the poetry/angst of Morrison with the focused 4 chord punk aesthetic of Nirvana, with a little dab of Dylannesque. What sets TOL apart is the anti-romantic, street-wise music they generate together. Frontman/guitarplayer/songwriter/vocalist/poet Nik Beat met the drummer at a Toronto poetry reading. The drummer suggested he backup Nik on some performance poems and their music grew organically out of this combination. Completing the lineup is keyboardplayer/background vocalist Linda Mercer and bassplayer Doc. Nik Beat decided to write songs with poetic lyrics and call the group Tyranny of Love after his best selling poetry book 'The Tyranny of Love'. Tyranny of Love or TOL is the word made musically flash!
