As the saying goes, don't judge a book by it's cover,and listeners who have previously overlooked Toyah or The Humans' music should judge this album on it's contents.This is the 3rd album release from The Humans, a band consisting of Toyah Willcox, Bill Rieflin, and Chris Wong. The band have delivered a fresh and funky mix of 7 songs, and have introduced violins and saxophones to Toyah's vocals which are effortlessly intertwined with the two bass guitars. The track, 'Amnesia' is truly stunning, with beautiful lyrics, and a melody which will be in your head constantly from the 1st time you hear it. Catchy tracks like 'Bedhead', 'Get in your car', 'She's fast' and 'Improbable thing' give the album a constant foot tapping, head swaying groove that raises the spirit within. Binding these songs together are the 1st track 'Slow descent' and closing the musical book of STRANGE TALES, is 'Sleep tight', both are deep, dark, and thoughtful songs and shows the bands innovative and playful style. The Humans have delivered an instant favourite, 'Strange Tales' is a Catchy, deep and funky story which is transcendent and exhilarating.
