NOT A TOY are an American collective from Colorado.
Their sound can best be described as alternative — blending various elements from pop to hip hop.
The band’s new single “BAD MOOD” is an upbeat yet moody track founded on thumping trap beats and pop melodies.
Lead vocalist Branson Hoog says the song is a playful nod to negative emotions.
“The past few years have felt really heavy,” he reveals. “‘BAD MOOD’ is a snapshot of where we have found ourselves in life recently. Although the lyrics are dark, the instrumental supports the song in a fun carefree way. It’s not about being triumphant or fixing your mood, but channeling that energy and not taking the darkness as seriously.”
