TOY share new single 'Mechanism' and announce Rough Trade in store shows


TOY have shared their new song ‘Mechanism’, the latest offering from their new album Happy In The Hollow, which is released on Friday January 25th 2019.

Their fourth album, and their first for new label Tough Love Records, was recorded between the band’s own home tape studios and mixed at Dan Carey’s Studio B in South London, the new album was entirely produced and mixed by the band.

“Each song was a blank canvas,” Maxim, of the bad said. “Producers inevitably develop their own patterns over time, right down to certain drum sounds. We were starting from scratch and it felt very creative as a result. It’s an album we feel deeply connected to”.

Finally, having recently played a packed-out show at the Shacklewell Arms in London, where they premiered a number of the new album tracks, the band have announced a run of headline shows in the new year and handful of shows at Rough Trade.
