TOY promised much and manage to deliver

"Since the beginning of the Year, TOY have promised much and have so far managed to deliver their part of the deal, two sublime singles ‘Left Myself Behind’ and ‘Motoring’ are the finest pieces of British guitar music this year and September’s debut album is hands down 2012's best rock album. Through relentless touring in their own right as well as being regular touring partners of The Horrors, TOY are becoming a well-oiled live act. Granted, playing the same fifteen songs all year round would mean that you’d get pretty good at it and even though this must be kind of tedious for the band, they take each song by the neck and shake the f**k out of it with major gusto."
