89 San Francisco is the dreamy lead single from TOVI’s debut EP Midnight Hum which will be released February 2018.
TOVI is the electropop project of Red Deer, Alberta based artist Rebecca Emms. Drawing influence from Portishead and Gorillaz’s trip hop style to alt-pop icons like Lana Del Rey and Lorde, TOVI’s debut solo EP Midnight Hum sonically delivers a hazy dream-like atmosphere of warm vintage synths, sultry vocals matched with deep bass rumbles and programmed beats.
After a split from her previous band Girl Meets Bear, Emms started putting together song ideas for her the EP in late 2016. Teaming up with recording engineer/producer Mike Rocha (Electric Youth, Greys, Black Pistol Fire), the EP’s four tracks were recorded in a downtown Toronto studio over a two week span, in the muggy heat of July 2017.
