“Firework Spraying Moon”

Jonti, Stones Throw’s last signee, is a South African arranger, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist who is now arranging, producing, multi-instrumentalizing, and vocalizing in Austraila. His debut album, Twirigig, is inspired by Canadian filmmaker/cartoonist Norman Mclaren. According to Jonti, “His films are complex, but they’re still fun. You can feel his enthusiasm for techniques and experimentation. I try make simple pop songs with that same enthusiasm.”

Twirigig is out October 11 on Stones Throw and will be preceded by the “Firework Spraying Moon” 7-inch, which is out mid-August.
