London-based newcomer Bonze has impressed us throughout the entire year; with each release showcasing this rising artist’s extraordinary skills at music making. He closes 2022 with another new single today, entitled ‘(Mercedes)’ – of which he explains:
“This song syncs song-writing and dance music together. It is my fourth single of the year, releasing with Bad Apple Records. It’s about a girl called Mercedes.”
To date, Bonze has garnered acclaim from the likes of CLASH, Wonderland and Rolling Stone while also accumulating more than 80k career streams on Spotify alone.
Fans in London will be pleased to know that Bonze performs at Camden’s PowerHaus in March 2023.
One of the most exciting British artists to have emerged so far this year has been Bonze.
Today marks his return with another sharp and unique release through new single ‘Give In’, further displaying this artist’s incredible skill at crafting interesting sounds using elements of electronica, pop, indie and rock. On the track Bonze says:
“It is about giving in to external pleasures. It’s about giving in to that bad thing that you know you shouldn’t do, but you do it anyway because it feels good/ offers pleasure in the moment.”
One of the stand-out releases of the week comes courtesy of UK artist Jack Reardon, who goes by the name of Bonze.
Reardon spends his days working as a trained psychotherapist, and these themes intrude on his music.
Produced by Brookfield and taken from Bonze’s forthcoming debut album, new single ‘Self’ delivers a bold fusion of electronic prowess and raw, open feeling – plunging the listener into a world of self-reflection.
“This song has a double meaning really, I’m not just talking to the audience through the lyrics; I’m also talking to myself. The song is not only an autobiographical commentary on my ‘self’ and my own struggles to tackle personal issues, but it is also a message to the listener to reflect on the instant-gratification nature of western society and how, instead of being seduced by substances to make them happy; they should really rely on themselves. You are the person that you’ve been waiting to meet, basically.”
Bonze performs live in London on 11th March with Dutch Criminal Records at The Water Rats.
