Toe, stylized as toe, is a Japanese post-rock/math rock band from Tokyo. The group was founded in 2000, and consists of Kashikura Takashi (drums), Mino Takaaki (guitar), Yamane Satoshi (bass guitar), and Yamazaki Hirokazu (guitar).[1]

Detailed information[edit]

Toe is currently one of four bands on the indie label Machu Picchu,[2] which was formed by the members of Toe, along with the bands Mouse on the Keys, Enemies, and Tangled Hair.

The vast majority of the band's music is instrumental. The band has changed their sound over their musical tenure by incorporating acoustic guitars, Rhodes piano, and vibraphones in their most recent releases. The band tours regularly in Japan.

Their most recent studio EP, Our Latest Number, was released in 2018.

In 2021 they contributed to the soundtrack for the anime series Sonny Boy.[3]
