Dancehall, Indie, R&B/Soul
Dancehall-bred. Orchestrated like old soul. Driven by emotive vocals inspired as much by Feist as by Yolanda Adams. There’s a rawness to Bonjay: to the feelings, to the voice, to the sounds clashing. It sounds like something new. Bonjay is Alanna Stuart and Ian Swain of Toronto. Their début Lush Lush LP and Broughtupsy EP have won them praise from The New York Times, Pitchfork and The Guardian. This is not background music! From the first coo to the last wayward blip, it demands your full attention.
