“This debut is all creepy, crawly kinds of fun, and we already want more…. It’s a record to obsess over from the off.” BBC

“Their self-titled debut album is psychedelia luridly reimagined for the 2010’s, complete with Krautrock’s hypnotic “motoric” beats, duelling FX’d guitars and the outlandish outpourings of a vintage Korg synthesizer… Once you’ve penetrated the noisy exterior, there lurks within a full hour’s worth of mind-altering, soul-searching, feedback-drenched wondrousness.” Q Magazine

“‘TOY’ is a stunning album … Most bands struggle to reach this level throughout their entire careers let alone on album number one.” The Fly

“Toy is easily a contender for the debut album of the year.” The Four Oh Five

“It took The Horrors two albums to get this good” NME
