Toyah Releases ‘Zoom Zoom’, Inspires Bedroom Revolution Ahead of New Album ‘Posh Pop’

Toyah gives us the next taste of her upcoming studio album Posh Pop (scheduled for August 28th) with new track Zoom Zoom – an anthem that sings of starting a revolution from the comfort of your bedroom. The ode to technology was inspired by Toyah spending hours over Zoom working on the album.

The singer shared: “We’ve explored a lot of pop media on this album. Zoom Zoom was a lightbulb moment in wanting to juxtapose today’s world with 1973. The title was a phrase of my co-writer and producer Simon Darlow’s who was spending eight hours a week on Zoom calls! It also refers to how we can start a revolution in our bedrooms now with smartphone technology.⁣”

The album, Toyah’s 25th album since 1979 and her first studio album since 2008’s In the Court of the Crimson Queen, sees her collaborate with Simon Darlow (guitars, keyboards, cello), Bobby Willcox (guitar) and Jeremy Stacey (drums) on ten tracks.

The album is described as “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”. Posh Pop finds inspiration in “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.”
