Album Review: She's So Rad - In Circles

Monday 15th August, 2011 1:25PM

After many years working under and amongst luminaries of New Zealand music, prolific muso Jeremy Toy (Opensouls, Hollie Smith, Sommerset) has for us his very first solo record under the moniker She’s So Rad. The album is In Circles and it is a sublime synthesis of the man’s tastes, influences, and loves. Inside you will find a loving recreation of the sounds of the 80s and 90s with a human’s touch at the core of its ramshackle heart. As the unifying element across the album, it is Toy’s presence that you are drawn to. His voice positively dances through the album and develops as a constant motif of the She’s So Rad sound. Sometimes it will be a thin and sharply prominent instrument, and at others it will be multi-tracked and lurking underneath the swell of guitar sprawl. It manages to be consistent without becoming tiresome.
