Toy – “Toy ” – [Small Town Supersound]

Toy is an electronic duo: UK composer Alisdair Stirling and Norwegian producer Jorgen Traeen. They allegedly met in the music department at Hamley’s toyshop. If the Radiophonic Workshop teamed up with the Yellow Magic Orchestra to produce themes for kids TV programs, they’d probably sound like this. Think infectious pop, elevator music with beats and grooves. The soundtrack to a dayglo, battery powered plastic world of robots, spaceships and drumming rabbits. Lopsided rhythms trundle away underneath shiny, synthetic melodies. They even sample Sparky’s Magic Piano on track 2 which is called Don’t Be as in “Don’t be surprised”. Tracks 6 + 9 are reminiscent of Tipsy. Track 7 brings Kraftwerk to mind. AArbor
