Toddy Shares Heartbreak In New Single “Honestly”


Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Toddy is also a celebrated drag artist and comedian who brings a unique blend of humor and pathos to their music. Trained as an opera singer, Toddy is about to drop their debut album Always in a few weeks, showcasing their ability to traverse a wide emotional and stylistic range. This is particularly evident in the album’s standout single, “Honestly”, which Toddy describes as “a mad breakup song with a happy melody”.

The infectious track combines upbeat, retro-infused pop with deeply personal lyrics. The juxtaposition of bright melodies and emotional lyrics creates a compelling dynamic. Lines like “I honestly tried, I honestly hurt, I honestly just wanted to make things work” are delivered with a sincerity that resonates powerfully, capturing the bittersweet complexities of love and heartbreak. The lo-fi kiss-off video accompanying the single complements its nostalgic vibes.

Throughout Always (June 21), Toddy draws from an impressive array of influences, including Kylie Minogue, Christine and The Queens, KISS, David Bowie, Annie Lennox, Lily Allen, and Adele. “So much of art-making is play and channeling childhood joy,” Toddy explains. “I wanted to bring that into the art that I made while tapping into the youthful essence of not being afraid to fail and not being afraid to try new things.”

This philosophy permeates through the album and makes it a celebration of individuality and artistic exploration, embodying the essence of play and the fearless pursuit of new ideas. Make sure you mark your calendar so you don’t miss Toddy’s debut album.
