– Dark Life Experience
‘I Ya Toyah brings her distinct, deep, and melodic voice to a visceral world of electronic wonder and hardened rhythms. An amalgamation of industrial, electro, rock, and a whole other slew of genres intertwined makes for one hell of a thrilling ride.”
– Brutal Resonance
I Ya Toyah is a Chicago – based one woman army that blends the chaos and balance with familiar vibe of industrial electronica sound. Her music melts the smooth, cutting edge vocals, surreal guitars, hypnotizing beats and multiple electronic synth elements into dark arrangements that, combined with storytelling lyrics, respond to the paranoia of everyday reality.
I Ya Toyah continues to spread this disease of music in her relentless mission of suicide prevention.
