Starting in early 2021, Tonix has risen as a popular duo in Adelaide, Australia, inspired by M83’s emotional "Hurry Up We're Dreaming" album, and the live energy and passion of artists like Baker Boy and The Comet is Coming. Underpinned by hand-mastered synthesizer sounds, the group has become known for their stage-shaking moshpits and energetic shows.
Henry and Archie, as Tonix founders, began by habitually busking in front of crowds in excess of 30 000 on Adelaide’s iconic River Torrens Footbridge after AFL matches from 2018-2022. The pair then switched to making music under the name Tonix, where they rose in the performance and festival space.
After releasing their debut single PEGS, Tonix achieved #1 placement on the Triple J Unearthed charts for over 3 weeks where it recieved 14 000 streams and over 2000 download. It was named as “one of the best debuts of 2021” by What’ s New On the Scene magazine, with American reviewer Moanbarrow writing, “Tonix has done something pretty darn unique. [PEGS] is a product of great mixing and talent.” ERA, as a follow up single, explored the techno side of Tonix. The critically aclaimed music video soon became a hit after its release one week later.
In 2022, Tonix composed, recorded, and edited their debut EP, "When We Are," featuring Sammi Keough on vocals for the first time. The first installment, "Stars That Hold Us," quickly made a big impact, with radio features around Australia, the music video being featured by ABC's Rage program, and press coverage all the way in Spain. The second single, "Overflow," has also seen radio success alongside a RAGE feature for the official video. The final two songs, "In This Lifetime," and the title track, "When We Are," are out now!
Tonix are a dominant live force, playing at festivals such as Space Jams, Redfest '22, The Red Skull's Big Night Out, Summer Block Party, Mt.
