In less than a week, chillwave movement pioneer Toro y Moi will head to the sunny shores of Singapore under the courtesy of Collective Minds as part of his Asia and US promotional tour for his latest release ‘Outer Peace’.
Primarily a graphic designer, the 32-year-old South Carolina native has come a long way since making bedroom recordings in 2001. The highly experimental Toro (whose real name is Chaz Bear; changed and shortened to match his wife’s last name Beardsley) has gone from making lo-fi tracks to dreampop, dance, jazz and rock music.
Toro heralds as one of the most ductile artists of the 21st century, his music unpredictable yet palatable. He speaks with a quiet humbleness, dances with ease and has one of the cutest and most genuine smiles plastered on his face.
His top hits include So Many Details & Rose Quartz from 2013’s Anything in Return and Girl Like You from 2017’s Boo Boo with all three songs raking up a combined 54.8 million streams on Spotify alone.
From performances on TV shows such as The Ellen Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers to established music platforms such NPR Music, KRCW and Boiler Room, it is clear that Toro is on track to becoming a household name in the indie music community and only just grazing the surface of mainstream music sensation. To top it off, music acts such as HONNE, Kaytranada, NIKI and Last Dinosaurs form part of his fanbase.
If anything, a night with Toro y Moi promises feel good vibes and the type of concert that gets you moving and bopping.
