Signed by ill.Gates label Producer Dojo, Dream Tonic’s new Essence EP is a 5-track journey through her fantasy-like world. With her lifelong and diverse music background playing a pivotal role in her ability to bring to life a concept precisely as she is imagining, her Essence EP is proof of her capabilities, showing off the level of immersion and personality she can inject into the music she’s made.
Rich with imaginative texture and overflowing with captivating character, Essence EP stands out with its creativity and character, unlike any other EP without straying too far away sonically where it’s unrelatable. Spark is the standout single of the EP, with Dream Tonic providing a few select words on what she believes is the best of the bunch as well:
“Story around the song: Although this entire EP has songs of darkness intermingled with hope, there is one particular song – “Spark” – that stands out to me. When I wrote Spark, I was in the middle of going through a very dark time. I had recently lost a person that I loved very much in a sudden and unexpected way. I felt like I was living in a black hole with no way out. Then I remembered that there are people around me who love me, who are still living, and that they need me to emerge, to come out and be my fullest, truest self. This song is a testament to anyone who loves someone and serves as their mirror, reminding them of the fullness of their beauty and potential when they can’t remember it themselves. “
