NEW MUSIC: TOY - “You Make Me Forget Myself”
28 Nov 2018
TOY share ‘You Make Me Forget Myself’. The latest track from upcoming new album Happy In The Hollo.
TOY have shared ‘You Make Me Forget Myself’, the latest cut from their new album Happy In The Hollow, which is released on Friday January 25th 2019. Their fourth album, and their first for new label Tough Love Records, it’s unquestionably their most direct and propulsive album to date.
Speaking on the new track, the band offered:
“It has a feeling of estrangement about it. The sound of someone you love who's going away and it doesn't matter. It's the first song Maxim has sung lead on and Dominic plays slide reminiscent of Ry Cooder on the Paris, Texas soundtrack.”

Happy In The Hollow is entirely uncompromising: an atmospheric capturing of a state of mind that touches on Post Punk, electronic dissonance, acid folk and Krautrock. Familiar qualities like metronomic rhythms, warping guitars, undulating synths and Tom’s gentle, reedy vocals are all in there, but so is a greater emphasis on melody, a wider scope, and a combining of the reassuring and the sinister that is as unnerving as it is captivating.'
The sound has without doubt expanded — and grown more confident — in part because
this is the first album for which Toy has become a self-sufficient five-person unit doing everything for themselves.
“Each song was a blank canvas,” says Maxim. “Producers inevitably develop their own patterns over
time, right down to certain drum sounds. We were starting from scratch and it felt very creative as a
result. It’s an album we feel deeply connected to”.
