Tonne Shares Addicting “Jesus, Julie Christie!”

Colorado’s Tonne just dropped a breath of fresh air on us, in the form of “Jesus, Julie Christie!” It’s three minutes of perfect power-pop that could have slotted in between XTC and Lloyd Cole on an episode of 120 Minutes 30 years ago. This is the first single from their debut EP, Bridey Murphy, due out the 13th of March.

Bridey Murphy – written, recorded, and performed by Jay Tonne – formerly singer and songwriter of Austin’s Black Forest Fire – is an upbeat and heavy but yet poppy, melodic, and guitar-driven indie-rock powerhouse collection of songs with an uniquely original sound inspired by 1980’s and early ‘90’s guitar bands such as Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., and early REM. In addition is the influence of recent Rock contributors like DIIV and Drake’s Hotel as well as revived early ‘90’s groundbreakers like Swervedriver, Slowdive, and My Bloody Valentine.
