Constantin Mille nr.4
British garage rock band Toy, London-based five-piece
From their formation in 2010, the band – led by doe-eyed indie pin-up Tom Dougall – introduced a pop sensibility to a psychedelic scene that had begun to collapse under the weight of its own synth-drenched indulgence. They came together in the southern seaside town of Brighton from the ashes of the much-hyped, but ultimately unsuccessful, indie band Joe Lean & the Jing Jang Jong. They quickly established a reputation for pop-informed garage rock, borrowing heavily from bands such as Kraftwerk, Berlin-era David Bowie and the Velvet Underground.
