We sure love discovering new artists from all over the world but it’s also a pleasure to find artists who are based in our HQ hometown of London. This week we introduce you to T.O.N.I.; an East London based singer-songwriter who caught our attention with her latest project – and her stunning visuals. T.O.N.I.’s most recent project MESSY is her first release with us and we’re so glad we came across it!
It has taken T.O.N.I. a while to get out there and be her authentic self, but now she isn’t afraid to ooze her own style and is comfortable doing the music that she loves.
She’s a self-determined artist, who and has written, recorded and mixed her early 2018 project AESTHETIC all in her own bedroom. The talented singer-songwriter brings us a chilled vibe and spontaneous beats with MESSY giving the project a smooth R&B tone.
We’re loving her artwork, if you are too you can check out her Instagram profile for more rich, lo-fi visuals.
T.O.N.I. describes her music as “expressive, raw and comfortably different, exploring themes of love, self-acceptance and a growth”. Throughout the album, T.O.N.I. addresses topics that feed into her life as a twenty-something creative living in London and draws us into her creative world.
Check out the colour-fuelled, girl-powered video for ‘Problem’ released last week.
Our personal favourite on the album is ‘Real Gud’. It almost has a runway atmosphere to it and dancing rhythms which remind us of summer.
