Plus, they've announced some live shows...

TOY have spun Stooges' proto-punk classic 'Down On The Street' in a synth-driven direction.

The band are gearing up to release new project 'Songs Of Consumption', an eight-track collection of specially selected covers.

Tackling material from the likes of Nico, Serge Gainsbourg, and more, the band have just shared a striking take on a seminal Stooges cut.

The opening song on Stooges' classic second album 'Fun House', 'Down On The Street' was originally a prowling, laviscious slice of garage rock.

TOY swap this for Suicide-leaning analogue synth minimalism, and their digi-punk framework places Iggy Pop's lyricism in an icy, ominous new landscape.

It's a real trip - tune in now.

'Songs Of Consumption' will be released on November 15th through Tough Love Records. Catch TOY at the following Independent Venue Week shows:
