Anthonie Tonnon is releasing a single and announcing a new EP and national tour in November.
The song, titled Two Free Hands, is Tonnon's first imprint from two years of international touring and experimentation. It is a sound that will be familiar to those who saw his recent shows supporting The Chills around New Zealand.
Produced in tandem with longtime collaborator Jonathan Pearce, Two Free Hands features contributions from Anna Coddington on vocals, fellow band member Stuart Harwood on percussion and drum effects, and Elizabeth Stokes (The Beths, Sal Valentine and the Babyshakes) on french horn. Thom Healey (Tiny Ruins, Dunes) mastered the song.
Dunedin artist Daniel Blackball Alexander made the artwork, which will also grace a four-track EP, out on November 3rd. This will be an EP in the original ‘Extended Player’ sense, with a collection of songs connected to the single, including a new collaboration with Wellington electronic producer Michael Upton, under the moniker Jet Jaguar.
While the song is available on all music and streaming services, the EP will only be available from Tonnon’s new website anthonietonnon.com, Bandcamp, and on physical CD during the tour. The EP is now available for pre-order via Tonnon's website or Bandcamp.
Tonnon will take Two Free Hands around New Zealand in November with a set of early evening shows that include The Dunedin Public Art Gallery, The Wellington Museum, Christchurch’s Blue Smoke, and two nights at the Grey Lynn rendezvous point Freida Margolis.
Since releasing Successor, an album which picked up nominations for both the Taite Prize and The APRA Silver Scroll, Tonnon has toured extensively, supporting The Veils and Nadia Reid in North America and Europe, and The Chills on a thorough tour of New Zealand, as well as his own headline tours in the USA and Australasia. Over that time, Tonnon has developed a one-of-a-kind show that combines both electronic and traditional instrumentalism, theatricality and dance.
This tour will be a chance to experience the show in refined environments around the country.
