“Toy are weird and wonderful and you’ll want to listen again as soon as they’re done.” – NME
“A futuristic spin on hallucinatory pop.” – NPR
It helps to understand that Toy don’t sleep.
They’re indefatigable, giving them both a searing clarity of vision and a shattered confusion of mind. Their magnificent, spiraling music is rain-drenched and mushroom-speckled – charting mystical plains and sailing uncharted oceans.
They broke with a self-titled debut in 2012 and cemented their reputation as the best alternative rock band in the UK with Join the Dots (2013) and Clear Shot (2016) – combining a headlong krautrock rush with shards of synthesizer symphonics and heart-bursting vocal harmonies.
It’s a gloriously kaleidoscopic sound. While myriad influences may have gone into the group, it is a single-minded, propulsive whole that emerges from the speakers. We’ve loved their music for a while now – and our expectations for Toy at the ‘Grass are ridiculously high.
That shouldn’t be a problem. TOY are playing when the festival reaches its apex, when magic happens. Golden hour at cruising altitude.
