New Zealand band Tokey Tones’ song Twice Is Nice

The Tokey Tones are the recording project of Scott Mannion and Li Ming Hu. The two mini albums, Caterpillar and Butterfly, were released simultaneously in 2003 and were a big influence on me in my teenage years. Mannion tinkered with old pump organs, celestes, glockenspiels, and analog synthesizers for a few years before completing these two fragile masterpieces. There is something intrinsically Pacific or New Zealand to this sound, and it’s not just because the albums sample native birds and bugs.
