New Music Of The Day: TOY – ‘I’m Still Believing’ (NME Premiere)

Since the release of their brooding second album, 2013’s ‘Join The Dots’, TOY have recorded an album of world psych music with Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan and producer Dan Carey under the collective moniker Sexwitch. These past two projects were great because of their mystery and impenetrability, but TOY seem to be set on trying something different for their upcoming third album ‘Clear Shot’.

The new album was recorded with producer David Wrench in late 2015, and mixed in LA by Chris Coady – who’s worked with Beach House, Smith Westerns and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. New single ‘I’m Still Believing’ follows the reveal of new track ‘Fast Silver’ last month and premieres below. It’s an upbeat, perfectly formed breakup song, and it’s also probably one of the most straightforward things TOY have ever produced. Take a listen below:
