TOTD #13: TOY – ‘I’m Still Believing’

It had been a while since I last heard anything from …TOY…  but as soon as I saw the name I was taken back to my mid-teenage years. Whilst the sound hasn’t developed a huge amount in the three years since Join the Dots, the lead single from their latest offering is still as strong track. The simplistic lyrics ‘She goes/I stay/And everything’s OK’ and the winding guitar riff which drives the song sound like a late 80s guitar pop throwback, and the lazily sighed vocal delivery has the dreaminess of The Stone Roses at their peak.
