Biography

Toy are a dub soul band based in the Midlands, UK. Their sound is a groove-based fusion of acoustic and electronic elements, with influences including The Black Seeds, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Gorillaz and The Cinematic Orchestra.

Set apart by the strong sense of atmosphere they create and the relaxed understated professionalism of the band, Toy have continued to build their reputation as a great live act over the past year, with festival highlights including Secret Garden Party and Beatherder. Anticipation is growing for their album release later this year.

Toy are proud to be self-produced, creating recordings from their own studio base, and value “in-house” creativity and management.

Toy can perform as the full 8-piece, the core 5-piece (without brass section) or can strip it down to an acoustic set to fit the occasion.
