Human Toys is a collision of electronic and raw rock’n roll sound.
Mademoiselle Poupée (lead vocals, theremin) and Emma Amaretto (guitar, vocals, computer) like to play with female archetypes : subversion is the game and humor is the rule ! Zeus Zelig (guitar, bass) joins as the guitar player for the US and Stephen Kida (drums) reinforces the digital beats with an evil voodoo touch.
The band’s music takes you in a hotrod, navigating the mad road through a musical landscape of subversive fantasy, oscillating between garage, punk, electro, grindhouse and giallo movies.
Their powerful live performances are moments of pure energy, saturated with their wild and sensual enthusiasm.
Whenever possible, original video projections accompany Human Toys’ performances.
Orignially created in 2006, Human Toys was a duo based in Paris. It is now a flexible unit as a duo or a trio based in Los Angeles and Marseille.
