Following some ear-catching manoeuvres across releases like last year's self-released 'Only' and 'Lagata',
which gained her early fans like Bjork and Dev Hynes (who she supported in the USA), 'Tommy' marks Klein's
deepest plunge yet into the "deep, dark ocean"of her musical imagination on her Hyperdub debut.
On 'Tommy' her vocals play with Fifties-esque melodies before switching to familiar tones akin to Brandy and
Rodney Jerkins, her live voice and live piano playing filtered through hyper-glitchy and looped production with
a loose, internal logic, cutting from angular atonality to pockets of skewered harmony. 'Tommy' also steps
things up in conceptual terms. Its eight tracks are broken down into acts that are rooted in themes of
vulnerability, sisterhood and death, threading the chaotic sonics with modern operatic undertones and a
Shakespearean sense of tragedy.
