Tonedeff breaks down the unique tale of "Five Sisters" • Word Is Bond

Tonedeff brings different worlds closer on his concept track “Five Sisters”. Inspired by 5 women in his life, Tonedeff reimagines the scenario using the classic RPG games with each sister playing a different role. The concept is highly fleshed out from the superb animation, the Super Nintendo cartridge homage and the overall storyline.  The characters range from rogue, mage, druid, monk and a fighter, which is the typical default but Tonedeff brings it home as he puts the women in those situations expertly with his easy to follow verbal illustrations and imagery. It’s best you hit the play button and watch the visual to fully appreciate what he did.

This deeply biographical track is taken from Tonedeff’s latest album, Polymer and the full-length feature documentary, Polyoptics: The Formation of Polymer. Animated entirely by Pandamusk.
