Rose Elinor Dougall - ‘The Night’ from ‘The Distractions’ EP
Toy - ‘My Heart Skips A Beat’ from ‘TOY’
‘The Distractions’ EP arrived early in January 2012 and fairly lit up those short, gloomy days with shivering Pop sparklers that twinkled and glowered from under heavily eye-lined lids. Oh how we eagerly anticipated a long-player of similarly scorching, soaring sounds, only to be greeted with a damnable echoing silence. The appearance of the debut set by TOY, which in many ways seemed to build on the sonic foundations laid by ‘The Distractions’ was small (but undeniably welcome) consolation.
