BON-BON is the guise of singer-songwriter Sian King, who despite only having released a couple of demos online, has already shaken up the online new music community, catching the ear of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson along the way and playing a set at Glastonbury this summer.
BON-BON released her EP ‘She Don’t Want To Know’ on 25th November 2013 and has unveiled the lead track on SoundCloud:
The track is written about a friend who doesn’t know how good she’s got it and the music video will be hitting us later this month, directed by the extremely talented Steve Glashier (Lissie, Alice Russell, Blood Red Shoes).
Produced by Mazen Murad at Metropolis, who has worked with the likes of MIA and Florence and the Machine, this stunning debut EP showcases BON-BON’s soulful indie-pop and powerful distinctive vocals. She describes it as “about friends and 'lovers', relationships and situations I’ve been in over the past 4 years. Taking particular situations and making them hyper dramatic, giving them a backdrop, scenery and characters. Having a real life experience and then making a story out of it.”
Hailing from South London, industry buzz isn't new to BON-BON. She has already been compared to fellow Brit Bat For Lashes as well as indie songstress Lykke Li to name a few. Catch her live for her EP launch at The Islington, London on December 12th.
