Toy Zoo

New wave has been resurfacing into a lot of different styles of music. Allow me to introduce one of my favorite examples to your ears: Toy Zoo! The band started out in Twin Falls, Idaho as a three piece with a singer, two bassists, and programmed synth and drum machine. Self described as piss pop wave, you can hear a familiar, yet astoundingly unique sound that gracefully strikes a chord from within, no matter what you’re into.

I had the pleasure to see them first play at Lake Destiny, a local house show. I instantly fell in love with their hauntingly beautiful vocals and danceable sound.

After awhile, they added a drummer and later a keyboardist to provide a fuller sound. After only being around for less than a year, they’ve had the opportunity to open for the Screaming Females!
