14:22:00 Phill Walker 0 Comments


With their upcoming appearance at Newcastle's Evolution Festival this year, we've given local band Toyger the once over.

Toyger are, Rory Duffy, James Diggins, Dean and Wayne Mizzi and Nick ShortThey hail from "The Bura" (Middlesbrough) and formed back in March 2010. It doesn't take much to see who they're influenced by, Foals being the most obvious one. 6Music's Tom Robinson recently had this to say on the lads:
"Toyger have set the bar remarkably high, delivering brave, ambitious music with panache... As Brian Eno once wrote, "an arrangement is where somebody stops playing" and Toyger's songs were arranged with a subtlety that escapes many professional musicians twice their age." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
The band are currently working on a new 5 track EP and it will be with us shortly. Check out the video below of some recent recording time Toyger spent in Newcastle as well as a Soundcloud of "Letter Bombs".
