Cecil
Toybox

Independent

WE SAY

London based singer-songwriter Cecil first came to our attention over eighteen months ago with the beautiful piano-led Haunt that effortlessly showcased her pure and dreamy voice. Since then, she has been working on new material by incorporating extracts from her screenplay-writing uncle Cecil McGivern (whose name she adopted for her professional persona) into her music and adopting an electronic pop feel. Last Friday (26 October) she released her latest singleToybox, following previous tracks, Black Maria and Queen of the Cruel, which helped her garner plays on BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing, as well as online tastemaker support from the likes of Clash, Essentially Pop and Spindle magazine among others. With its wickedly hooky vocal line “round our heads like la la, la la la, la la la la la la, and it goes like la la, la la la, la la laToybox is a gorgeously dark and compelling dose of ethereal alt-pop. Watch her eerie and twisted video featuring Cecil in a custom-made, human size music box. Having performed at Liverpool Sound City, Hampton Court and Henley festivals earlier this year, she will be performing in London at the Hoxton Square Bar on 4 December. A decidedly addictive treat for this All Hallows Eve.
