PopGun Presents: Toy + More
Buzzy beats from one of NME’s top up-and-coming bands
Toy is an English indie-rock band from Brighton who’ve been turning heads with their raucous psych-rock. They’ve caught the attention of bands like The Horrors and The Vaccines, both of whom had the rockers open up their shows worldwide. What sets Toy apart from the myriad imitators in the same genre? It’s definitely the nod to ‘70s German Krautrock, a style of music fusing electronic production and classic rock elements. Feathers and Young Boys open up the night. Totally genius. General admission. Over 21s only. General admission. Over 21s only.
"This band surf the cosmic channels of krautrock, cruising along on motorik beats, waving at pals The Horrors and tipping their hats to Syd Barrett as they chug through hypnotic, psychedelic pop songs."
