The Tones and I blasted onto the scene with the mega smash hit “Dance Monkey” however with their new single, “Eyes Don’t Lie,” they are trading dance beats for a more somber tone.
In it, Tones finds herself lost and alone in the desert, before stumbling onto an oasis of booze and bugs.
The song, Tones explains, “is written about a large loss of someone / something,” adding, “the music video reflects being alone, but not lonely. Escaping something that hurt and happy to be wherever else, even though it’s over.”
“Eyes Don’t Lie” marks the first new music from Tones (real name Toni Watson) since the release of her debut album, Welcome To The Madhouse, which dropped last July and immediately hit No. 1 on Australia’s national chart.
