Hint at all sorts of magic
My Toys Like Me - Come On Sunshine

Now more of a collective, the London synth-jabbers’ second album provides the ticket to a slinky - if slightly bonkers - underground party. Frances Noon’s coquettish yelp, minimalist breakbeat and cool-dude rap all shape a sound that both bubbles and seduces. But just when My Toys Like Could be dismissed and good-time flutterbys, the penultimate track ‘Come On Sunshine’ unfolds - a giant, maudlin pop masterpiece that hint at all sorts of magic. These kids are toying with us.
