Industrial Artist I YA TOYAH Announces New Album and Shares New Single

I Ya ToyahIndustrial/Electro Rock artist I Ya Toyah has released the music video for her new single Glass Eyes.

Glass Eyes is I Ya Toyah’s third single from the full length debut album Code Blue. It tells a story about mental crash as a consequence of a chain reaction caused by social expectations, pressure and fear of failure, resulting in procrastination, inaction and…insanity.

Glass Eyes symbolizes the distorted reality we live in. We are the victims of constituted values and the system supporting them. We need to question the rules we live by, and why we seek constant approval from society. To be socially accepted, we are pressured to fit into a definition, a label that is nothing more but a moral agent suiting to control the mind that is supposed to be free. I Ya Toyah wrote the song to make a point that seeing things differently doesn’t have to be the wrong thing. It often opens up a possibility for us to notice what we haven’t seen before. It’s ok not to be ok- we all aren’t. Struggling with the darkness and demand to hide it causes more unease. It builds a vicious cycle, fear of fear, leading to unwellness and mental instability.

I Ya Toyah’s debut album, Code Blue, will be released on October 26th, 2018. Consisting of ten industrial electronic tracks, it will feature I Ya Toyah’s powerful vocals, the untamed mix of musical chaos and balance, and the message fully supporting mental health and suicide prevention.


I Ya Toyah landed here to spread the disease of music and infect the human race.

I Ya Toyah is a Chicago – based DIY independent musician of Polish origin that blends the chaos and balance with familiar vibe of industrial electronica sound. Her music melt the smooth, cutting edge vocals, surreal guitars, hypnotizing beats and multiple electronic synth elements into dark arrangements that, combined with storytelling lyrics, respond to the paranoia of everyday reality.
