Following shows in Australia supporting Joan As Police Woman and ahead of a UK tour with Natalie Evans, Bonniesongs has shared the video for ‘Frank’ – an ode to the creature in Mary Shelley’s classic 1818 novel Frankenstein.
The Australia-based Irish art-folkster opens the song with her distinctive vocals talking of lobotomies over eerie and atmospheric strums. This helps build up a canvas of how it feels to be as misunderstood as the creature in the title: ‘I’m afraid the creature’s on its way. Oh, it’s too late. This thing is here to stay’; ‘Nothing can be safe from me, no, nothing can forgive’. As strings surround the layered repeated words of ‘I’m a monster’, the song finishes with an atmospheric flourish as Bonniesongs assertively declares: ‘I don’t want the things you have’.
‘Energetic Mind’ is released 6th September 2019 via Small Pond Records (UK) and Art As Catharsis (AUS)
