TOYGIRL are a 5-piece alternative band based in Dublin, Ireland. Lead by British/French vocalist Hannah Worrall and accompanied by four Cork natives, Aran Hopkinson, Ciaran Whelband, Fiachra O’Mahony and Cian O’Leary Hegarty, the group blend their wildly varying musical interests and personalities in pursuit of creating a truly unique sound.
Described by Hot Press as a “pigeon-hole busting bilingual quintet… ‘Reign’ (the group’s debut single) – is a slinky, soulful number with roots in cerebral 80s pop”.
“Reign is a smooth laidback track that speaks directly to the soul. The vocals are nothing short of amazing and angelic.” – Fresh On The Net
The Last Mixed Tape writes “‘Reign’ is a deep dive into a texturally lush sound that blends alt-pop and neo-soul into a fully-realised production to powerful effect.”
Though ‘Reign’ is the group’s debut single, the band have already established themselves in the Irish live scene. Being described by REMY Music as having “been blown away by TOYGIRL, their set was outstanding, perfectly arced and teasing builds leading to spine-tingling crescendos. Main vocals were highly impressive, ranging from sombre laments to soaring euphoria.
The group of friends sold out their debut Irish & UK headline tour, with shows in West Cork, Cork City, Galway, Belfast & Dublin.
