Listen: Tones And I Releases Debut EP 'The Kids Are Coming'

Words by: Tim Smith

First up, CONGRATULATIONS to Tones & I!

We’ve seen this incredible human go from strength to strength in her very humble music career thus far. Our first interaction with her was when we booked her for her first Sydney headline show in Bondi (PICS HERE). And now, Tones And I has today released her debut EP THE KIDS ARE COMING via Sony Music Entertainment Australia. The EP is led by Tones And I’s international smash Dance Monkey, which is receiving over 20 million streams a week!

Originally from Australia’s Mornington Peninsula, Tones And I traveled to Byron Bay in early 2018 to take a chance at busking. On the first day she had crowds spilling onto the street. Tones quit her retail job and decided to make Byron her new home where she lived out of her van for a year, honing her songwriting and busking every weekend. Today, with the ARIA accredited 2x platinum single (Dance Monkey) reaching #1 on streaming service charts around the world. Currently the fastest rising song on the UK’s Official Singles Chart, it also sits at #1 on the ARIA singles chart for a record-breaking fourth straight week, and holding off international heavy weights making her the first solo female artist in over ten years to hold the #1 spot for four consecutive weeks.

This September Tones And I will embark on a sold-out Australian headline tour which is set to kick off on September 13th at Adelaide’s Lion Arts Factory, and continue through mid-October. The Australian dates, which sold-out in minutes, will see Tones And I performing multiple nights at 800 capacity venues around the country.
