Bio

A bit new-wavey, Missing drops as another hard-hitting electro track from Toyah. It's space and future, and not quite the status quo.

Toyah’s music is self-described as watching Blade Runner and Tron Legacy, in that it is tense and emotional, but you can dance to it. The Melbourne based euro-pop-electro producer and artist started DJing in 2013 but wanted to be playing her own music and started learning how to produce.

Influenced by a variety of artists in different genres such as Maya Jane Coles, Karin Park, Fever Ray, Daft Punk, Fleetwood Mac, Booka Shade, and Tokimonsta, Toyah's music exhibits gritty synthwave chord progressions with folk-like vocals. There are 80’s influences and lots of 90’s house vibes.

Toyah is a producer at Studio Truth Melbourne and is currently collaborating with a few artists, preparing to release new music and looking forward to performing at Torch Festival in Sydney in April.

In 2017, she released a few singles including "Take Me", "Transcendence",
and "Madness This Love" (featuring Rya Park) which reached #4 on Triple J’s Unearthed Dance Chart and #33 on the Unearthed Best 40. In 2019, she released the synthy and infectious single, "Together". She has played notable venues such as Boney, Night Cat, Grace Darling, and Gaytimes Festival.

What a hook of a team. Rya carries those warm vocals of hers and brightens this nicely produced track. Nice work.
