UK psychedelic indie rockers TOY have announced plans to bring their live performance to Australia for the first time ever.
Formed in 2010, it’s taken 3 years for the band to schedule the trip but, on account of the wait, we will be lucky enough to be serviced with their debut full-length album.
The first and self-titled LP from the band dropped just last year and despite the prior knowledge of just how many influences and penchants were thrown in to the release, the final product of TOYis a focused beam of psychedelic madness. It’s not just genres that the band transcends, but also time periods, with each bar beckoning back to one era of great music or another.
Most recently, the band gigged it hard with The Horrors, who gave TOY the nod of approval by inviting them on the road. A similar thumbs up was received from Primal Scream who also sought the supporting abilities of the band. No doubt TOY have picked up a few tricks while on the road, which they will unleash on Australian audiences this June.
