The Sydney Morning Herald
Behind her clever, tongue-in-cheek lyrics and strong, occasionally soaring, vocals is a self-confessed outsider attempting to open herself up through music.

This new Tones And I album... it's NOT GOOD.

💥Explosions💥

It's been 2 years since Tones And I has been internationally torturing the public with her very unlikely hit "Dance Monkey", which was such an odd radio sensation due to one element that is quite weird, and can't really be traced back to any other radio hit. That element that I'm referring to ruins every track on this album, and of course I am talking about the drums... just kidding, I'm obviously talking about these ... read more
