Opening with soft piano keys, ‘Jenny (Can You Hear Me?)’ initially begins as a reserved song, yet it quickly flourishes into a synth-pop stunner.
The emotional sensitivity remains throughout the single thanks to Bonze’s feeling vocals, but there’s a joy here too. The elastic synths and punchy percussion allows the listener to revel in the nostalgia of good times past, even if the challenges eventually overpowered the relationship.
Already supported by the likes of BBC Introducing, Bonze is a promising musician in the vein of The 1975, joan and Bad Suns, and if Spotify is anything to go by, the appetite for this refined indie-pop style never waivers.
“Jenny (Can You Hear Me?) is an unapologetic love song. It was written in a shed in winter. The song is about the beginnings of a relationship with a girl called Jenny, it’s about how emotionally up and down I can be and about how I felt that I was fully ready to commit to the relationship and just hoped that she was ready too. It was written with an 80’s-sounding analog synth, a mic, guitar and piano. This song became the foundation of my sound.”
