‘GAG ORDER’ is Thando’s own powerful expression of internal and black community monologues resulting from the systematic cultural assimilation and subsequent ostracism of black lives in her community.
“I come in giving a nod to the current race relations in the media at the moment. It creates a powerful statement about how perceived ‘sameness’ (the result of assimilation) comes undone when it really matters, so what’s the point of doing it [assimilating] anyway?”
“Life in Colour” will feature some of Melbourne’s best Zimbabwean artists in a tribute to Thando’s heritage; including FRANÇOISTUNES who drops in on ‘GAG ORDER’ to deliver his smooth blend of synth and hip-hop.
“This is song of the year so far for me. You never know where it's going, but you know it's gonna be good - 4.5 stars”
- Dan Condon, Double J Music Editor, on ‘NUMB. ft Remi’
“Soulful Tones, flawless delivery”
- Herald Sun
