Biography

Toy Soldier is an Irish based electro-pop trio combining a dance floor groove with rocking riffs. Think of your favourite club night with Nine Inch Nails and Blondie mashing it up on the decks. 

They are releasing the first song to be taken from their forthcoming EP ‘Breathe’, which will be released in March 2015. The slick, super catchy ‘Sugar’ will be filling club dance floors both sides of the Atlantic very soon!

Having perfected their live performance in L.A. with early live shows in world renowned venues such as The Viper Room and The Mint, Toy Soldier are now one of the most exciting bands on the live music scene with an unmatched level of showmanship amongst their peers.

 Spawning a number of very eye catching videos the band quickly gained a reputation for their sharp image, even being nominated for Sexiest Music Video at the IMTV awards in 2013. 

Toy Soldier had a foray into the sporting world when the Munster Rugby team chose the band’s then forthcoming single ‘Animal’ as their official run-on song for the 2013/14 season.

2014 sees the band continue to bring their high octane live show to international audiences.   This year saw the trio dent the Irish charts with single ‘Animal’ which was taken from the bands recent ‘Love Buzz’ EP. 

[A polished high energy sound that is as unique as it is fresh” - Dwayne Woods, The Irish Daly Star

 

“Memorable tunes with catchy choruses… Irresistible tune Butterfly has chart topping single written all over it” –

Colm O Hare, Hot Press Magazine – writing about band’s debut album ‘Calling Up The Dusk’ in 2012

Lyrics

Butterfly

Written By: Cian Walsh

Making a stand by taking your hand
I want you to know so you don’t let go

Why would you run when the night is young?
Why would you worry your boots?

Oh if you need to think about it
Can’t say that I’ll stick around
But oh if you do something about it
You can have me here right now

Butterfly

Making a stand by taking your hand
I want you to know so you don’t let go

Why would you run when the night is young?
Why would you worry your boots?
Why would you run when the night is young?
We don’t have nothing to loose.

Oh if you need to think about it
Can’t say that I’ll stick around
But oh if you do something about it
You can have me here right now

Butterfly

Climbing Trees

Written By: Cian Walsh

Going to meet a friend
Going to meet a friend
With idle minds we’ll loose ourselves
To find our way again

In the heat of the sun
In the heat of the sun
Waiting for the starting gun
All is possible

And you wonder why we close a door
Just to break it down
And we’re breaking it down

Climbing into the trees
Climbing into the trees
From way up here it’s hard to see
The darker things that be

On our way to the ground
On our way to the ground
We’ll pick a fruit of memory
In taste forever bound

And you wonder why we close a door
Just to break it down
And we’re breaking it down

Toy Soldier – Sunset Girl

I don’t understand why I let you in
All you are is trouble

Roll roll the dice

Sunset Girl

I don’t understand why I let you in
All you are is trouble

Roll roll the dice

Sunset Girl
Easy now, leave my world

Natural Disaster

Written By: Cian Walsh

It's all emotional
So God damn uncontrollable
Wish I could think of someone else
Somebody I don't call my friend

Just a look, just a touch, just a smile ain't enough

Oh oh oh
Don't suppose you could be
Oh oh oh
Sidney to my Nancy
Oh oh oh
Put your skin on my skin
Oh oh oh

It's a natural disaster
It's a natural disaster

For everything we leave unsaid
Goes on repeat inside my head
And even when I'm with my guy
I think about you all the time

Just a look, just a touch, just a smile ain't enough

Oh oh oh
Don't suppose you could be
Oh oh oh
Sidney to my Nancy
Oh oh oh
Put your skin on my skin
Oh oh oh

It's a natural disaster
It's a natural disaster

Animal

Written By: Cian Walsh

You lookin for love?
Boy you will get hurt, you'll get hurt
It's only lust that I do
You're mine for tonight
you better make me smile make me smile
I'll spit you our when I'm through

Jesus will save you baby
In the next life
Jesus will save you baby
But now you're mine

I will bite you
I'm an animal
Keep running, keep keep running honey.
I will bite you
I'm an animal
Keep running, keep keep running honey.

You're making it worse by not giving up giving up
Chasing me like a fool
I got my fix it was just for kicks just for kicks
To bad it meant so much to you

Jesus will save you baby
But now you're mine.

I will bite you
I'm an animal
Keep running, keep keep running honey.
I will bite you
I'm an animal
Keep running, keep keep running honey.

I- I- I- I'm an animal, I'm an animal, I'm an animal
I- I- I- I'm an animal, I'm an animal, I'm an animal

I- I- I- I'm an animal, I'm an animal, I'm an animal
I- I- I- I'm an animal, I'm an animal, I'm an animal

I will bite you
I'm an animal
Keep running, keep keep running honey.
I will bite you
I'm an animal
Keep running, keep keep running honey.

I- I- I- I'm an animal, I'm an animal, I'm an animal
I- I- I- I'm an animal, I'm an animal, I'm an animal
