TOY - Left Myself Behind

Tremelo arm frenzy guitars, doomily offhand vocals, distinct taste of Psychedelic Furs... if you didn't know TOY are tour supporting the Horrors at the moment you'd probably have guessed. Shoegaze as it is, this debut single (via Heavenly, tellingly) is though more Sea Within A Sea disturbed motorik noise than Skying's stadium drone, its length and cockeyed build resolutely parking its swirling, trembling guitar shapes and absorbingly lengthy breakdown outro within psych/post-punk darkness. Factual plot point: Rose Elinor Dougall's brother Tom on vocals.
