Psapp is an English experimental electronic duo, consisting of Galia Durant and Carim Clasmann. They are mostly credited to have invented a musical genre called toytronica, which is electronic music made with toys and/or toy instrumments. Though they are not really known, Psapp is responsible for creating the music theme for the medical drama series Grey's Anatomy, Cosy in the Rocket. They're also know for their sense of humor on stage, usually throwing hand-made cats on the audience.
It's hard to define Psapp's musicality. Some songs look like some kind of bossa nova, others sound really experimental, and others are more close to electronica. But it can be agreed that their tunes sound dreamy and child-like, together with Galia's smooth voice.
The duo don't present so much activity these days. In 2009, they released the EP Early Cats and Tracks- Vol. II, with old songs which are not present in the album. Apparently, Galia is dedicating herself to an illustrator career, with a brand new website.
