TOKUNBO's second solo record is a lyrical album, which captures the refined symbolism of the swan perfectly. Driven by the many changes in her own life, 'The Swan' reflects recent tranformation, including the birth of her first child. Underlined by grace and love, the beauty of 'The Swan' retains a dark, sensual quality of music, a music which has been given the deserved lable Folk Noir.
TOKUNBO is known to audiences and critics alike for her insistence on high quality sound, and 'The Swan‘ is no exception; hi-fi connoisseurs will once again get their money's worth. The tonal textures range from lyrical strings to the playful use of vibes – all meticulously reproduced with extraordinary dynamics.
