Already outgrowing their native lands of Australia, The Bonnie Doons turn to the rest of the world. Aiming to conquer everybody’s radios and Spotify playlists, they’ve already featured in NME thanks to their incredibly unique indie vibe.
With an addictive blend of Rap, Pop, R&B, indie rock and even Reggae, the upcoming EP is set to be an extreme breath of fresh air for the music scene.
One of their latest singles, ‘Fred’, offers to-the-point advice on relationships, explaining not to feel guilty when finishing a relationship that just isn’t working, wrapped in a bouncy guitar riff and smooth vocals.
“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.”

With a similar vibe to the likes of GUM, Ocean Alley and San Cisco, The Bonnie Doons’ music is an easy listen with layers of guitar and great vocals, unique to only them.
Grafting since 2017, they have definitely become of one of Brisbane’s hardest working, up-and-coming acts. Releasing their debut EP Face to Face last year, they received a hugely positive reception, leaping into production, and begin working on its follow up, The Betweeners, due out on 20th November.
Produced by songwriter Kane Kennedy and mixed/mastered by ARIA-winning engineer Govinda Doyle (Angus and Julia Stone), ‘Fred’ is a brilliant comeback for the band, as they look towards a brand-new chapter of music.
“This record was a new approach to music for me personally, we steered further from the Aussie surf-rock sound to a more pop-like 90’s vibe. I still hear similarities between this and our previous record, mainly in the guitar work, but it was ultimately Torian’s vocals that gave us the ability to pursue a different genre and direction with the music.”

Having already smashed large stage performances, supporting the likes of Wolfmother and Bootleg Rascal, The Bonnie Doons are shooting to stardom, and with the release of new music around the corner, they are itching to get back in front of fans as soon as the climate allows. For now, we have Fred to keep us going.
