Single Review... Toy - Left Myself Behind

TOY is a Korg Delta led five-piece formed in 2010. It consists of Tom Dougall (Vox/Guitars), Dominic O'Dair (Guitars), Maxim Barron (Bass/Vox), Alejandra Diez (Synthesizers/Modulation) and Charlie Salvidge (Drums/Vox). TOY's musical influences incorporate a wide range of genres including punk, psychedelia, krautrock, post rock and musique concrete to name a few.

Left Myself Behind:
The A-side 'Left Myself Behind' has an urgency and driving rhythm throughout that will make Toy a force to reckon with for 2012. The subtle yet highly effective sampling is penetrating and the delivery of vocals is icy and dark.
Out of 10: 8/10

Clock Chime:
The B-side 'Clock Chime' doesn’t stand up against the A, with a slow pace and minimal direction. However the A-side is so great that the single is worth that alone.
Out of 10: 8/10
