Zimbabwean born, Melbourne based soul singer Thando will be at Inland Sea of Sound 2020.
2018 has seen Thando complete a metamorphosis. Kicking off the year by releasing a powerhouse collaboration with REMI, resulting in frank single 'NUMB'. A track which saw her reflect on her own identity as a woman of colour in Australia and her feelings of ostracism by the current political climate. The single garnered big love from triple j, Double J, national community radio and saw her tour nationally.
Thando's new single 'Happy', sees the songstress adeptly meld soul and hip-hop elements, smoothing the biting message of her new song with her quintessential, honied vocals. When the heady smoke clears, Thando's 'Happy' message is clear: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
She's won fans nationwide through her mesmeric live performances. Securing coveted support slots with Leon Bridges on his Bluesfest sideshow, Sampa The Great, REMI and having wooed festival crowds at Strawberry Fields and her annual hometown, historically sold out Chapel off Chapel performances.
Thando's new single 'Happy' premiered via Purple Sneakers and is OUT NOW.
PRAISE FOR THANDO
"You got buckets of soul" - Will.I.Am
"This is song of the year so far for me. You never know where it's going, but you know it's gonna be good."
- Dan Condon, Double J
"A bold new voice, making rad music and tackling relevant issues while she's at it"
"...[on 'Trouble'] a winding, soulful song that channels the inherent cool of future-R&B acts like The Internet, but slowly builds to a crashing crescendo courtesy of a dreamy, atmospheric production from Henry James."
