An ode to the lost, lonely and wounded, NYLEX NIGHTS typifies the character rich stories that inhabit the songs of LOVE’S SHADOW. The existential ponderings of NYLEX NIGHTS build to a sort of call-to-arms “Come on people/let’s cause some offence/ we are not evil/just trying to make some f*cking sense. All the losers, liars, ratbags, drunks, the bored and the insane/ their lives make sense, because it makes no sense to them”.
Having spent 10 years and four albums fronting rock band YOUTH GROUP, Love’s shadow is Toby’s first solo record. Written in various rooms in between Sydney and New York, it was produced by Toby and long-time friend Tim Kevin
TOBY MARTIN has just announced with great excitement that he will be joining ROBERT FORSTER when he tours this October/November. With The Go-Betweens’ 16 Lovers Lane being a major influence on the writing of LOVES SHADOW, these shows are set to be very special indeed.
