Both Man and Tonique have toured and worked as multi-instrumentalists, DJs, and composers, a level of experience that proves evident in their sound. Focusing on the fusion of funk and disco, and pairing it with comedic lyrics about waking up too late, feeling good, and losing oneself, the track makes up for its lazy lyrics with an easy and varied groove. For a song about a chronically tardy guy it's pretty compelling, leveraging plenty of inventive hooks and breakdowns to piece together a sweet little slacker-pop manifesto.
With debut album Opening Soon to follow, the French buddies have lots of musical room to roam, the question being whether they will bother? Their press release itself bogged down with pizza references, it’s evident that Tonique & Man are unphased by professionalism, preferring an aloof and fun approach, heady pop escapism.
