The intimate single ‘Jenny (Can You Hear Me?)’ from Bonze is a juicy fruit of a love-song documenting the singer-songwriter’s struggle to commit and new-found readiness to take the plunge.
The single carries a beautiful, down-tempo melody from Bombay Bicycle Club’s ilk. The soft and airy vocals of Bonze can be likened to that of Bakar; perfect for singing indie songs of vulnerability and love.
The ambient track blooms with an analogue synth and flourishes into this gorgeous, confessional record attune with guitar, piano and this incredible singing voice. When the tune drops into this 80s-style synth-pop piece of art it evokes a strong angsty-summer vibe; images of palm trees and cruising around in the sun with the top-down spring to mind in a flurry of distant summer love.
The London singer has achieved five different single features on BBC Introducing London and BBC Introducing South-West with ‘Jenny (Can You Hear Me?)’ having already achieved plays on the coveted London station. Bonze’s last single, Herioin(e), appealed to the dance DJ Draper who remixed the single and elevated awareness of this young artist in not just the indie scene but the feel-good house scene too.
Fans of The 1975 will welcome the clean-cut retro-synth vibe of this rising star. The intimate lyrics paired with a bouncy holiday beat is the perfect recipe for an absolute summer bop to spin on every summer playlist.
