Songs Of Consumption, an 8-song collection of unique
interpretations of tracks which have inspired the band - tracks by Stooges, Amanda Lear, Nico, The Troggs, Serge Gainsborough, Soft
Cell, John Barry and Pet Shop Boys/Elvis/Willy Nelson (depending on how you know the song). Talking about the album, TOY said:
Songs of Consumption sonically is a continuation and development of the themes conceived on Happy In The Hollow and it will show
people where we are going towards musically. The DIY approach was explored further utilising more of the electronic elements that we
touched upon before. Drum machines, stripped down arrangements and rudimentary production give a primitive sound that we thought
suited the choice of songs. Some of the songs have very big sounding production, so we wanted to experiment with them by going in a
different direction. Music is consumed voraciously now whereas these songs came from a time when the song was of the most
important thing and that's what was appreciated. Stripping them back to the essence of what they are was also something we wanted to
explore. Also, we wanted to make a covers record with songs by people that influenced us in the past few years and it's as much about
the way they dealt with their ideas, and how they put themselves in uncomfortable situations in order to make something that in the end
is simple. It's a homage to the spirit of these people, that helped us to untangle ourselves from our inherent complicated nature and
create a new space where we can exist.
