Toy is an English band founded by schoolmates, guitarist and lead vocalist Tom Dougall in 2010, second guitarist Dominic O’Deer (Dominic O’Dair) and bassist Maxim Barron, along with a drummer Charlie Salvidge and Spanish keyboardist Alehandra Diez (Alejandra Diez). Their musical expression is a combination of sung and psychedelic rock, post-punk and krautroka.

The first single “Left Myself Behind” was released in 2011 for Heavenly Recordings in a limited capacity of one hundred copies and sold out all in one day. That year they were pre-group The Horrors and performed at numerous festivals including Field Days. The following year, they released the debut record of the same name, winning a number of positive reviews, in May 2013, along with The Vaccines on their British tour.

The second album “Join the Dots” (December 2013), re-produced by Den Carey, cemented their position as one of the best alternative bands in the country, holding a series of gigs in a tour that culminated in their biggest London a concert held at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire Arena.

In late August, the band was part of an interesting project called Sexwitch with Bat for Lashes, and Natasha Khan and producer Dan Kerry. Shortly thereafter, Alehandra announced that she was leaving Toy, and as a replacement, a full member of the group becomes Max Oscarnold of The Proper Ornaments, who was previously a member of the band on tour.

The third and current album, “Clear Shot”, saw the light on October 28, 2016, and was produced by David Wrench. The recording was done at Steve’s Eve Studios, while Chris Coady, who previously worked with bands such as Beach House, Smith Westerns, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, included the mix of this release. The album consists of ten tracks, and the material that failed to be found in this selection, was released on the bonus EP release.

Statements from criticism:

“Such moments (such as” Dream Orchestrator “) make” Clear Shot “Toy Toy the most ambitious and most important album so far” – AllMusic

“Another great release from the band that gradually builds … catalog” – Guardian

“Above all, Toy makes us excited again because of the Britpop, which is not by itself a small feat” – Exclaim

“In his third album, this Brighton quintet seems to have finally tapped their handwriting impulses, guitar guitars and MBV distortion into quite decent songs” – Uncut
