"This Cork lot count Hot Chip, Ladyhawke and Joy Zipper as their influences but in fact the sound that they've created is completely their own. Less electronic than the cited bands above, their simple, organic melodies belies a musical cunning. Definitely ones to watch in the future". - The Star Newspaper

"Toy Soldier are a Cork electro-pop duo whose songs are distinguished bt their summery vibe and catchy melodies. They delivered a series of impressive performances on this summer's IMRO showcase, and also played a blistering set at the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival. In addition, a tour of the US west coast saw Toy Soldier play at the House Of Blues on Sunset Boulevard, and also appear on popular LA station KCSN FM". - Hot Press

"Corkonian Cian has a bouncier approach to singer-songwriterdom than his more introspective cousins. '(Don't be a) Fool' has a Paul Simon polish to it and a decent chorus to boot, with cheesy harmonies that give it a lift when it needs it, and a rhythm that will ease the most restless of toes. 'Reflect' is an upbeat track with featherlight and fluid guitars skating along beneath Cian's fine vocals. 'The Pieces That Fall Away' takes him into ballad land where his voice truly shines. This is impressive stuff, full of charm and style, and song arrangements serving as fitting vehicles for Cian's handsome voice."

Bio

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
