‘Won’t Sleep’ by Tones And I – Single Rating: 4/5 ★★★★
Unique as ever, Tones And I, paves the way forward for contemporary pop with her new release, ‘Won’t Sleep’.
The new track from the Australian opens with an unorthodox overture; it kicks off as it means to go on. Furthermore, an ominous tapping rhythm kicks with a vocal from Tones And I, which goes up and down with an oscillated texture. It is quite the opposite to what her peers are delivering currently; as a result, it gives her a well-defined edge that you will struggle to locate elsewhere.
Gratifying Performance From The Australian
Vocally, Tones And I is in flying form, and she smashes through her performance, taking no hostages on the way. Her tones are gratifying, with her revealing a thought-provoking narrative about partying into the dead of night and keeping it from mama, who will stay up with worry.
Enjoying her newfound success, Tones And I leverages her prowess from the get-go, and her special deliveries leave us with goosebumps. Likewise, she proves to be open to being innovative in her space with a cadence that stands out like the proverbial thumb, but for all the right reasons.
Also, as the track progresses, many new sounds reach out of the compound; it slaps the chops like a wet fish. It is a technique that the Australian unleashes time and time again. But, it has never left quite as much an indent as it does here.
