Toy band brings indie rock to town
    2017-September-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

British indie rock band Toy will perform at B10 Live on Thursday.

Toy’s eclectic sound has been described as a combination of psychedelic rock, krautrock, shoegaze and post-punk. The band was formed seven years ago in Brighton by school friends and former Joe Lean & The Jing Jang Jong band members, singer/guitarist Tom Dougall, guitarist Dominic O’Dair and bassist Maxim “Panda” Barron along with drummer Charlie Salvidge and Spanish keyboard player Alejandra Diez. Salvidge has previously performed “The Sixties Show” on Bristol radio station BCFM, and played with punk band Mudfite. Shortly after, the band moved to London and six months later signed to Heavenly Records.

The band’s debut single “Left Myself Behind” was released in 2011 and was described by The Guardian as “excellent ... recalls some kind of late-80s/early-90s jam session between Stereolab, Felt and Pulp.”

The band was picked as one of NME’s “100 New Bands You Have to Hear” in January 2012, with Rhys Webb of The Horrors describing them as “the most exciting band to come out last year” and “my favorite band for 2012.”

The band has released three albums, an EP and a number of singles. Its third album “Clear Shot” in 2016 was produced by David Wrench and The Guardian called the album “another fine effort from a band who are gradually building up an absorbing catalog.”

Time: 8:30 p.m., Sept. 14

Tickets: 150 yuan

Venue: B10 Live, North Area, OCT-LOFT, Nanshan District (南山区华侨城创意文化园北区B10现场)
