Toyah Posh Pop
For over a year one of the most watched 'YouTubers' and internet sensations has been Toyah Willcox. Toyah's 'Sunday Lunch' performances with Robert Fripp and weekend broadcasts have been seen by 38 million. Simultaneous to creating consistently unique online videos, Toyah made the album Posh Pop with her long-term songwriting partner Simon Darlow. Posh Pop is a strong collection of infectious and affirmative pop songs that are as joyous as they are reflective, from the cosmic groove of "Space Dance", to the sun-kissed anthem of unity "Summer Of Love". The album is crafted with evocative storytelling and musicianship from Toyah, Simon Darlow (guitars, keyboards, cello), Bobby Willcox (guitar) and Jeremy Stacey (drums). Posh Pop opens with the energy-burst of "Levitate" and leads the listener on a journey that climaxes in the soaring, intergalactic-tinged "Take Me Home". The album was inspired by the world we find ourselves in today and touches on the ever-present desire to be 'famous for fifteen minutes' a la Andy Warhol, escaping the everyday, but above all staying connected to humankind beyond computer screens and geography. Produced by Simon Darlow, Posh Pop is Toyah's first brand new studio solo album since 2008 and twenty-fifth album since 1979. Pressed on 180 gram space grey vinyl.
