New Music Friday: Banoffee, DRAMA, and Boniface

Jan 17, 2020

By Bella Carles

Australian artist Banoffee has shared the second single and music video for the song “Count On You“. It’s another exciting look at the record which features collaborations with the likes of SOPHIE, Empress Of, Cupcakkke, and more. Look At Us Now Dad is both a kinetic hybrid of experimental club sounds and earworm pop, and an uplifting, optimistic story of survival—of abuse, sadness, and loss.

Chicago duo DRAMA have released a new song and video today for the song “Years” from their debut Dance Without Me out on Ghostly. The project is the multicultural collaboration between producer Na’el Shehade’s chic Chicago house-infused production style, and vocalist Via Rosa whose soulful delivery is inspired by the improvisational nature of jazz and playful patterns of hip-hop and bossa nova. Their friendship and the music they create together crosses not only cultural lines but shows the magic when people from different walks of life come together.

Lastly Boniface – who uses they/them pronouns – is the brainchild and primary creative outlet for Canada’s Micah Visser. Another new artist to have on your radar, the album is a catalog of coming-of-age experiences, each moment captured in diary-like detail and set against a magnificently sprawling backdrop. Micah reflects on falling in love and facing heartbreak whilst struggling with identity. The result is a body of work both bracingly honest and powerfully exhilarating. Out this week is the new song “Oh My God”.

Of the new single, Visser explains: ” ‘Oh My God’ is about letting someone know how you feel emphatically but without expectation. Love can feel big and scary and complicated but mostly I think it’s just about speaking your truth and letting it lie. With “Oh My God,” I’m speaking my truth and letting it lie.”

Boniface’ is out on February 14th, 2020 through Transgressive Records and can be pre-ordered now.
