Australian pop singer-songwriter Tones and I introduces herself to UK audiences with her new single ‘Dance Monkey’.
It’s high calibre, modernist pop with Tones’ soulful vocal gift giving it a timeless quality.
It’s already a smash hit in Australia, where it hit #1 on all of the key charts, including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and Shazam.

“I wrote this song about being a busker,” Tones explained in an interview with triple j. “There were a lot of times when I was busking there were a lot of people in your face, like ‘More, more! Go again, again, again!’ I really respected the people who supported me through busking, but there were times when it was really noticeable that people were so used to being able to swipe to see something different to entertain themselves that the patience had diminished.”
Tones’ massive breakthrough year started with her debut single ‘Johnny Run Away’ which earned unprecedented support from triple j. It soon became their most played track for two weeks running and raced to Platinum status, with ‘Dance Monkey’ elevating her to another level and her third track ‘Never Seen The Rain’ continuing her ascent.
All three tracks feature on her debut EP The Kids Are Coming, which will be released on August 30.
