Toy – ‘Motoring’


Sharp, hungry post-punk,

Toy are the current namecheck of choice for photosensitive try-hards, but we won’t draw comparisons to certain other brooding bands with good hair and black polo necks as that’s unfair. For ‘Motoring’ they’ve curbed their more drawn-out, psychedelic impulses in favour of sharp, hungry post-punk, and it’s all fine. Three SCUMS out of five, then. Whoops.
