Chillwave Leader Toro Y Moi Blessing Us with Paper Tiger Show


  • Andrew Paynter
Incorporating indie rock, ’60s baroque pop, ’80s R&B, French house and underground hip-hop, Toro Y Moi is arguably the leader of all things chillwave. Much like bands such as Norma Jean and Thursday defined the sound of a generation with metalcore and post-hardcore, Toro Y Moi has sort of done that same in the 2010s for his respective style. And while he’s mostly known for sleepy jams, his art manifests across a variety of genres.

In other words, dude’s a badass, and you’re not going to want to miss his performance at Paper Tiger.
