New Musical Express considered Toy to be one of the bands to follow in 2012 and for Guardian their debut album “Toy” is "excellent … sounds like a jam session in the late 80's / early 90's between Stereolab, Pulp and Felt …".
The first single "Left Myself Behind" was followed by "Motoring", the perfect soundtrack for a road trip on the way to Coura. Toy have played in several British festivals last summer and were invited to support Primal Scream’s concerts in Scotland.
Omara "Bombino" Moctarin, is also confirmed to play the Vodafone mainstage on 14th August. Bombino’s new album will be launched in 2013, produced by Dan Auerbach, frontman of the Black Keys. Descending from the Berbers of Northern Africa, Bombino was born in Niger near Agadez. He spent much of his life in the desert, looking after animals while playing guitar inspired by Jimi Hendrix or Mark Knopfler.
