Having already secured support slots with the likes of Friendly Fires and N.E.R.D. ‘Critical’ has already become an underground hit with Radio One plays of the band’s performance at this year’s Reading/Leeds Festival, courtesy of Nick Grimshaw and Huw Stephens, which where they were the highlight of the BBC Introducing Stage.
With huge support for the single coming from 4Music, Clubland TV, NME TV, The Box, Kerrang Radio and Gaydar Radio (and not to mention being championed by the likes of Steve Lamacq, Nemone and John Kennedy), ‘Critical’ looks set to take the band in to the mainstream.

After taking the Reading and Leeds Festivals by storm back in August (they were the only band on the Introducing stage to be played by Nick Grimshaw and Huw Stephens), the good folk at BBC Introducing were very keen to get Soft Toy Emergency in to record a session for them. Subsequently, a few weeks ago, the guys dropped in to Maida Vale studios to do just that…
