      They are a great band. Their album was in my top ten for 2012.
      If you enjoy their stuff then check out Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs.

      Enjoyed the album but still think they are a bit of an inferior version of The Horrors.

      Lose My Way was in my Top Tracks of 2012 list. I find they're one of those bands that don't sound too good in the car - you need a nice clear environment and a load of volume so you can lose yourself in the sound.

      Have seen them loads, they are excellent. First time was at the Corn Exchange at last year's Great Escape - when they were absolutely on fire. They've supported British Sea Power a few times and were superb at Field Day the other week too. If you haven't already got it, buy their album from last year - probably my favourite album of 2012. I think they are from Brighton, incidentally (or at least the singer is - he's the brother of Rose Dougall, who used to be in the Pipettes).

      Corgi is right, Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs (who have supported Toy at a few gigs) are also worth checking out.

      Thanks for that, I am struggling to find a download of their album over here without using itunes. I will get their CD at the gig if not before and will check out the other bands tomorrow.

      Hello Kevo. I did not realise there was a Brighton link and that it was Pipettes related. I may be wrong but one of the members of Toy was part of Joe Lean and The Jing Jang Jong, who were also pretty good despite the name.
