TOY share Bunny Kinney-directed video for ‘Another Dimension’


TOY have shared the brand new, Bunny Kinney-directed video for Another Dimension, the latest track lifted from their recently released album, ‘Clear Shot’.  Watch the video via YouTube below.

Released in late October via Heavenly Recordings, ‘Clear Shot,’ recorded with producer David Wrench towards the end of 2015 at Eve Studio, is the band’s third album.

Taking inspiration from an esoteric blend – Radiophonic Workshop, Comus, the scores of Bernard Herrmann, John Barry and Ennio Morricone Fairport, COUM, Acid House, Incredible String Band, The Langley Schools Project, The Wicker Man soundtrack and even the direction behindElectric Eden, Rob Young’s book about the development of folk music in the U.K. – ‘Clear Shot’ is their most coherent and confident album to date; lushly cinematic, shot through with their most expressive melodies thus far and coated with a ‘sheen’ courtesy of Chris Cody (Beach House, Smith Westerns, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) who mixed the album in LA with some of the reverbs and vocal processors used on ‘Purple Rain’.

TOY previously released their self-titled debut in 2012 and cemented their reputation as the best alternative rock band in the country with ‘Join the Dots’ at the end of 2013. Such was the reception to ‘Join The Dots’ that TOY toured their second record for nigh-on two years, culminating in their biggest London show yet at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in April 2014.

They have also recently made their ‘Spellbound’ EP available digitally. The EP, featuring Spellbound, News From Nowhere, Poor Jack & Love Seeker, was recorded during the band’s album sessions and was initially available as a limited edition CD with initial quantities of the album purchased via UK independent record stores.
