Munggu Tribe Records are delighted to announce the release of TÓKE’s electrifying new EP „THIS IS STUPID“. „THIS IS STUPID” is a refreshing reminder to let go, reconnect with the inner child, and revel in the simple pleasures of life. Produced by Berlin-based producers Keymer and FLKS, the EP transcends genre-boundaries, offering an exhilarating experience that defies categorization, seamlessly weaving in elements of Reggae, Afrobeat, Singer-Songwriter and Pop into an eclectic sound explosion of German-Indonesian globetrotter Tóke.
The EP drops with the uplifting Reggae-infused pop hit “Lonely Island” as lead single, exploring the universal desire for a break from the stresses of life – something we all need in these times. All in all, THIS IS STUPID comprises a carefully curated selection of four tracks: “Easy & Sway“ bringing a Poppy-Bossa Nova bounce, fan-favourite „Dreams“ being an uplifting Reggae-Infused motivation anthem, „Love Cave“ as a juicy afrobeat-banger and the lead single „Lonely Island“, showcasing Tóke’s soulful Reggae side, with a modern-sounding punch. Ultimately, „THIS IS STUPID” is a kaleidoscopic exploration of sounds, emotions and experiences.
The accompanying music video of “Lonely Island” is a cinematic-comedic master piece by young Indonesian director Jovian Fraaije (Manungsa). With breathtaking scenarios of East Bali’s landscapes, the video pulls us in with it’s peculiar atmosphere. The plot: After a catastrophic explosion on the MS Balty caused by a giant octopus, Tóke, a stressed business man, wakes up on the shores of a lonely island. Distressed at his fate and desperate in the beginning, he slowly gets not only accustomed the solitude, but falls in love with it.
Tóke will be on tour in Germany this November presenting his new EP in a cozy acoustic atmosphere with special guest Jon Moon.
