Toonelised is a result of life itself. We met via music-forum while searching for band members. Although there where several other persons who where showing interest, only two people showed up to the local rehearsal studio.
After several years of just jamming together, we decided that instead of a full band we will form a duo - and so the name "Toonelised" rise up.
Toonelised - plural of Tooneline. Toone is an old name for the underground world in Estonian mythology. And the grey bird living in swamps represented the connector between the living and the dead. And with a slight grammatical twist to the noun itself a name "Toonelised" was created.
In spring 2018 we visited Dublin and while being there, we also went to the Westland Studios in order to record some songs.
Currently we are located outside of the capital of Estonia. Although previously we rented a private house in the capital we were forced to move out week after we bought our own set of acoustic drums. So we moved to an old lemonade factory outside of the city.
Our music is influenced by rock, blues and folk. Lyrics are written in Estonian as also in English. We write songs about nature, love, people, and whatever the rest that comes to our mind. The lack of other band members are been filled by just more noise and the idea that less is more.
