ABOUT TOKKA

I was never less alone then when by myself...

In 2018 Ingrid Tokka founded her own band "Tokka", releasing her debut album "Never Alone" mid-October that same year. The songs are often philosophical and are about different phases in life, relationships, important decisions or strong emotions and love. Some are about seemingly inexplicable things, such as dreams, death, the origin of life, the universe, and our inner, spiritual and mysterious aspects. The music and lyrics are mainly by Jo Cassiers, whereas the arrangements and instrumentation deliberately have been chosen to revive the pop and post-punk atmosphere of the 80s, albeit in a contemporary style. We clearly hear the influences of popular bands from that period, such as Fleetwood Mac, U2, Simple Minds, Roxette … Indie pop and rock, with noticeable influences from the 70’s and 80’s.
