Washington artist Tonty has released her empowering new track, “Narcissus Poeticus,” all about toxic self-love.
“Narcissus Poeticus” displays Tonty’s ability to incorporate her distinctive vocals into the chill and well-structured atmospheric instrumentations as she talks about the struggles of being an independent artist who has to repeatedly self-promote without help or support from anyone.
