- Make It Mine by TOY
6/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 December 2012
It concerns me that Toy are so hyped, are people hearing something that is just inaudible to my ears? Do their songs grow on you? Do you just start to ignore the lethargic production, flat-ish singing, forgettable songs? They are also one of those bands who sound nothing like the supposed comparisons. It must partly be the blast of press that is causing the issues with me as every time I hear them I just feel like a popped balloon.
The lead track wanders along sounding not unlike an unwell Psychedelic Furs. There are copious amounts of high pitched synths, leading me to wonder whether they left the studio door ajar when Nick Rhodes was on the loose. I kind of like the way the song stumbles into its chorus but thats about as good as I can muster. For track two they’ve got a pro in to sort out the mess, Richard Fearless (Death in Vegas) brings a real kraut edge to the proceedings which erupts into a nice upbeat chorus with bass and synths powering along nicely. On the flip we get a few minutes of unlistenable electronics then a BBC recorded blast through the Velvet Underground’s ‘What Goes On’. A song choice and performance which kinds of sums this band up; uninspired.
