Brisbane-based five-piece, The Bonnie Doons have released ‘Fred’, the first taster of their newest EP ‘The Betweeners’.
Already attracting attention from NME, who incidentally named the new album “An instant summer soundtrack”, The Bonnie Doons are looking to expand their fanbase from Australia to the rest of the world.
Their 90s style produces a thrillingly addictive sound, a combination of alternative, rap and pop. With one of their latest singles ‘Fred’, the band has created a perfect taster for the album, boasting chiming guitars and swampy grooves, ideal for late summer hammock swinging. ‘Fred’ offers to-the-point relationship advice and preaches not feeling guilty about breaking up with someone if it simply isn’t working.
“In this track, I talk about staying true to who you are and not letting your emotional attachments to things or people keep you from doing what’s right for you. Breaking down the barriers of guilt, letting something go, and moving on.” – Torian Brewer, The Bonnie Doons
With a similar sound to those from Ocean Alley, San Cisco, and GUM, The Bonnie Doons’ music is a delight; it is effortless and easy to sink into. Listen to ‘Fred’ now using the link below (thank me later..) and look out for the rest of ‘The Betweeners’, coming soon!
