TONIE’s Latest Single: “secondhandlover”

a Prince-inspired funky bop about open relationships

“A vague invitation to my domain of neon lights” invokes the Prince inspired aesthetic of “secondhandlover”, a song about inviting a lover into an open relationship. This sexy, funky bop features staccato synths and guitars, a hypnotic bass line evoking Janet Jackson and lyrics full of double entendre. The singer invites the listener to make them their prey, their object of desire, ensuring them it’s consensual for all parties involved. This belongs on any bedroom playlist getting ready for fun.

TONIE is doing their very best to help you feel comfortable in your own skin

The LA-native writes and produces each synth-pop track from the comfort of their skylit home studio in Brooklyn, NY — a perfect backdrop for the emotional vulnerability that colors their lyrics.

They have been featured on Spotify’s “New From NYC: Pop” playlist and publications, such as Buzz Music: LA, Mobangeles, and The Music Bugle.

During live shows, TONIE dives deep into moments from their life that inspire them and the stories behind their music. They hope that through their combination of vulnerability and bombastic energy, listeners will experience catharsis and feel empowered to embrace who they are fully, without holding back.
