With her abstract break beats, fragile voice and mesmerizing lyrics, female artist Tone has found an impressive outlet for her inner musical strengths, creating experimental ambient electronica sounds ranging from uplifting moods to bleak shades of melancholy.
Musically, Tone – who carries the civil name Sofie Nielsen – creates a remarkable audiovisual realm in which her light and spell-binding voice adds to a bedrock of crunchy break beats, abstract compositional structures and melodic sounds and samples. Not being a typical songwriter in terms of clinging to the usage of the traditional structure of verses and choruses, Tone relies on improvisation and creative exploration in the creation of her unpredictable musical landscapes – while adding daunting, yet compelling lyrics – and thereby drawing listeners into her musical and atmospheric universe of thoughts, sounds and a myriad of emotional expressions.
