TOY are a 5-piece London based band comprising of Tom Dougall (vocals / guitar), Dominic O'Dair (guitars), Maxim Barron (bass / vocals), Alejandra Diez (synths / modulations) & Charlie Salvidge (drums / vocals).

The start of 2012 began with a 4-week, sold-out residency at London's Shacklewell Arms with The Times observing after the first show that TOY "pull in all kinds of elements from the history of underground music to create something new."
Before their first U.K. headline tour in April, which would include a sold-out London XOYO show, the band would record their debut album in 2 weeks with Dan Carey in is South London studio.
The summer saw them appear at most of the U.K.'s leading festivals including Reading / Leeds, Latitude, Bestival, End Of The Road, Festival No.6 and Green Man while they continued to release singles including Motoring, Dead & Gone and Lose My Way.
Releasing their self-titled debut album to much acclaim in September, they would go on to play an extensive U.K. tour in November between performing shows in the U.S., Japan and across Europe.
Due to release the final single from their album, My Heart Skips A Beat in March 2013, the band end 2012 touring Europe with their album appearing in a number of albums of the year polls including Mojo and the NME. They return to the U.K. to headline London's Scala in February as part of the NME's Awards Show series.
