TOY have announced details of a headline UK tour in October following the release of their debut, self titled album on Heavenly Recordings on 10 September. The tour takes in a headline show at London’s Heaven on Wednesday 24th October.
TOY played a 4-week residency at the Shacklewell Arms in London in January, and their UK headline tour in April culminated in a sold-out show at London’s XOYO.
They recently played at this year’s Field Day Festival, supported Primal Scream on a number of Scottish dates and have played various festival dates over the summer and are set to play further festival dates to include Standon Calling, Green Man, Reading & Leeds weekender, End of the Road, Bestival & Festival No. 6 in Portmerion.
TOY release their 3rd single Lose My Way on Monday 3rd September 2012.
The single, released as a 7”, features the B-Side Bright White Shimmering Sun, a live favourite which does not appear on the album.
Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs channel mid-70s NYC art punk through Syd Barett weirdness, taking the sounds of one blank generation and blasting them out to another. The group, featuring members of Electricty In Our Homes and Flats, have just released their debut single, ‘Ducks’, which was produced by Toby Kidd of Hatcham Social.
Debut single ‘Ducks’ out now available through their website.
Check out the video for ‘Ducks’:
Inspired by their own inertia and a sense of dislocation, The Bombergs make abrasive pop music informed by a love of DIY punk sounds and New York disco culture. Their live performances are either triumphant or utterly shambolic but the fact they’re unpredictable is part of the draw. Catch them now before the rot sets in.
