Featured Artist: The Tontons

Written by Rory Burbeck | March 26, 2013

Clean guitars, subtle keyboards, and a magnificent, angelic voice to bring it all together. The Tontons' music starts simple, but then it flawlessly transforms into a more active and vibrant sound. The transitions between the soft, quiet sections and the loud, more aggressive parts are beautifully done! The simplicity of each individual instrument allows for a very concise overall structure. It’s refreshing to hear a band that really understands how to work within the limits of each song.
