TOY – “Fast Silver”

TOY – “Fast Silver”

Last year UK psych-rock outfit TOY released a collaborative album with Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan and producer Dan Carey as Sexwitch, a project that grounded the band’s dreamier tendencies towards a more targeted rumble. Now that Khan is back at the helm of her other band, TOY have gotten around to providing a proper follow-up to 2013’s Join The Dots. Their new album, Clear Shot — the group’s third studio LP — is out later this fall and is led by “Fast Silver,” a playful mid-tempo trip that balances brooding overcast with punchy keyboard motifs. Vocalist Tom Dougall’s moan pushes through the band’s hazy atmospherics, punctuated by meandering guitar and flickering percussion. It’s deliriously delicious grunge-tinted acid-pop, loosely performed, yet impeccably assembled. Listen below.
