Toy Share New Songs The Willo And Energy, Confirm September London Date

Thursday, 13 September 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Toy have returned with a new release plus details of a London show later this month.

Recorded and mixed by the band between new keyboardist Max Oscarnold’s Stoke Newington flat and a south London studio, the release serves as a taste of their forthcoming album and features two songs each showcasing a different sound. The Willo is a meandering seven-minute, dreamy, folk-influenced story, while Energy is a jagged, post-punk piece. Talking about The Willo, the band explained:

"People appear to have seen Will-o'-the-wisp, a mysterious green-blue light, over the centuries. It generally means something ominous is about to happen..."

The psych band will put out the release on 12 inch vinyl on September 14 through their new label home Tough Love, while the follow-up to 2016's 'Clear Shot' is expected to arrive in January 2019. 

The band have also confirmed a performance at the Shacklewell Arms in Dalston on September 28, with tickets for the show on sale now.

Thu 31 Jan 2019
Toy’s third album, 2016’s ‘Clear Shot’, showed that the Brighton quintet had more up their sleeves than homages to their influences, the most obvious of which was Krautrock. Those hypnotic, motorik beats still remained, but there was a more experimental element, one that kept a foot in their past while thrusting another in the direction of dreamy psychedelics that would have been admired by Syd Barrett.
