TOY "Dead & Gone" (Andrew Weatherall remix)
Published Aug 30, 2012Last week, UK combo Toy offered up a video for the shoegazey "Lose My Way," off their impending self-titled debut. The group are showing us another side of themselves this week, though, via an extended dance mix of new tune "Dead & Gone," courtesy of English DJ Andrew Weatherall.
The track technically doesn't play much longer than the guitar-strewn original, but Weatherall's treatment makes the number a bit more atmospheric. Organic percussion has been swapped out for an icy, motorik clap, singer-guitarist Tom Dougall's spacey vocals appear to have been scrubbed entirely, and analogue synths smuggled out of Gary Numan's The Pleasure Principle museum filter back and forth between the speakers.
You can check it out in the stream below.
As previously reported, Toy drops September 11 through Heavenly Recordings/Cooperative Music/Fontana North.
