Toy Reloaded

Orla is back, and we are rehearsing again. That is all!

Orla has left us to have her baby, we wish her the very best, and hope to see her soon.

We have a new singer (and guitarist) Rachel. We’re enjoying working on some all new material

We are five

Toy Welcomes our new Drummer Beatrice. We hope to evolve our songs to match our new format and bring them to your ears.

Thanks to everyone at Menier Gallery for being such great hosts and a such a warm and appreciative audience. We had a wonderful time and were very happy to hear you enjoyed the evening’s entertainment. It was especially lovely to be surrounded by such stunning artwork. An inspiring night out! Goodnight!

We are proud to be performing for Espacio Gallery Artists in February at the Menier Chocolate Factory at 51 Southwark Street in London.

Menier Gallery will host the South London Art Map (SLAM) Bankside  district after party at which we have the honour of performing.

It’s going to be a very exciting night for us.  We’re looking forward to performing some brand new material as well as some of our old favourites.

We are really looking forward to seeing some excellent contemporary art and to meeting the artists.

We’ll be performing these songs;

Domino, How Low You’ve Fallen, Soon & Walls

Never

We’re working on a new song – “Never”. It’s all about the regrets of things that never happened.
