Emerging from past Byron bands such as Word Up & The Dead Ends, local dude Hugo Costin-Neilsen AKA Toy Boats has emerged with a new acoustic project that has turned more than a few heads. In the space of a few months he has gone from only playing a handful of shows, to gaining the attention of Sydney based Resist Records.
“Finding an artist that furnishes the heart with something authentically euphonious is a rarity, however with the latest edition to the Resist Records family we have found just that. Echoing the warmth of his hometown Byron Bay, Hugo Costin-Neilsen, performing under the name of Toy Boats, delivers placid acoustic tracks that delight the spirit.
Enveloping the grace of a young Bon Iver and eliminating the agony of Bright Eyes, Toy Boats embodies a nostalgic journey where we are all invited, stopping to smell the blossoms along the way.
Make sure to keep an ear out for his Resist Records debut early next year and in the mean time head over to his site to get a preview of what’s to come.”
Brisbane people can catch the man at Snitch this Thursday.
