Watch: TOY Release Music Video For "It's Been So Long"

London-based psychedelic band TOY have released the video for "It's Been So Long". 

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their sophomore album 'Join The Dots', released on December 9 through Heavenly Recordings.

The clip was directed by Jesus and Mary Chain founding member Douglas Hart,who says: “The video features calibration charts used for everything from testing focus on microscopes and optical movie projectors to the calibration of cathode rays and the accuracy of the US Army Air force’s bomb and gun sights. The video also includes colour reference charts which instruct technicians as to the true nature of black, white and the three primary colours which combine and overlap within optical devices to create every imaginable colour and shade. Often these charts include strange symbols mapped out in mysterious lines, spirals, and solid shapes, some of which look like they belong on the pages of a New Orleans Voodoo curse, or on an Op Art canvas."
