The Tomboys are a young 4-piece girl band from Kobe, Japan that take classic rock sensibilities and style and mash them up with modern-day pop music in a delightfully-sweet powerpop s’more that is taking Japan by storm!
In 2011, a group of 8th grade girls formed a cover band called NoName to play songs by such artists as The 50 Kaitenz and SCANDAL.
In 2016 the band known as NoName was laid to rest… And an extremely familiar-looking band called The Tomboys was born!
After recovering from the minor identity crisis, the four girls comprising the newly-christened Tomboys made their way to London to record with producer Glen Matlock (former member of the Sex Pistols!!)
While in London, The Tomboys played their first show abroad, sharing a bill with Glen Matlock himself!
In 2018 The Tomboys fly to Europe to perform. France, Italy, Germany and UK. They played 14 shows in 17days.
Who knows what other amazing things are in store for our heroes?! Well… while they’re waiting to find out, The Tomboys are going to keep on rocking… leaving a trail of happy faces and blown minds in their wake!
