Liverpool’s rising star Tonia announces her upcoming debut EP Afloat and shares a taster with new single ‘Empty Conversations’, out today.
Building upon Tonia’s distinctive sound, candid and honest lyricism, her velvety vocal lays bare an unspoken conversation to an ex. ‘Empty Conversations’ showcases both Tonia’s effortless ability to pen immediately relatable songs, and cements her expertise in the smooth, soul-influenced pop she has become synonymous with.
Speaking on the track, Tonia elaborates: “When I wrote ‘Empty Conversations’ it was quite a while after the relationship had ended but it was enough time to figure out exactly how I felt about it. It is about self-assurance: the joy you can find in the moment you realise you feel no emotion towards someone that you once felt deeply for. I had moved on and grown from a past relationship and I had no hurt left. I was able to enjoy the comfort of happiness I found in myself instead of relying on finding happiness in someone else.”
