Chicago-based one woman industrial electronic army I Ya Toyah is back with her new single “Vast Spaces”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Serving as the the most dark and dystopian song off Toyah’s new Out of Order EP, the track was written, produced and performed by I Ya Toyah and produced, mixed and mastered by Nick Palazzo at Evolution Recording.
“It’s the final composition of this EP where I just pour all the voids into the world,” says Toyah. “It’s aggressive, powerful, loud, and distorted because that’s exactly how I felt when writing it. I hope it translates the mood of pandemic and the total disturbia we all found ourselves trapped in.”
The “Vast Spaces” music video, filmed and directed by Ralph Klisiewicz of Niche Visuals, can be expected to premiere June 23rd on Toyah’s Youtube channel. Like all her other video premieres, it will include a live chat with a Q&A.
The Out of Order E.P. is now available for streaming and download on bandcamp. Click here to purchase physical CDs, vinyl records, and specific merch from I Ya Toyah’s fashion line.
I Ya Toyah landed here to spread the disease of music and infect the human race. She is a one woman army that blends the chaos and balance with a familiar vibe of industrial electronica sound. Her music is a fusion of smooth, cutting edge vocals, surreal guitars, hypnotizing beats and multiple electronic synth elements arising into dark arrangements that, combined with storytelling lyrics, respond to the paranoia of everyday reality.
The meaning behind the name I Ya Toyah sustains these values- when spoken out loud, in Polish it means “It’s Just Me”. Born and raised in Poland’s tough reality, she migrated to the USA as a young adult to seek a better life and musical fulfillment.
