Get to know Florida-based singer/songwriter @Tonnermusic with his inspiring electronic pop single “Castles”

TONNER, “Castles”

“Castles” has the hybrid distinction of being upbeat and inspiring, as well as touching and sentimental. It’s brought to you by Orlando-based singer/songwriter Tonner, who is perhaps better known as being a producer for the last 10 years or so as well as a member of indie Tik Tok favourites The 502’s. A few years back, Tonner decided to step into the spotlight and hasn’t looked back since, while still producing and being part of The 502’s. “Castles” is a beautifully written song that acts as a source of gentle escape for those who have experienced loss or have found difficulty coping through the pandemic. The imaginative lyrics, set to a mellow electronic production, are highly appealing with a lot of bright summery touches. If you enjoy songs by singers like Ed Sheeran, James Bay, or Mokita, then “Castles” is especially for you, although it reminds me a lot melodically of Marc Cohn’s “Walking In Memphis”.
