New Music: Bon Villan – When I Came Up & How To Hurt (Official Audio)
Toronto based electro-pop band Bon Villan is releasing their self-titled debut EP on February 3rd 2018. The band released their first single “Outta Cash” in June 2017, the song has been described as “a smart mix of bubbly MGMT electro and streamlined, slicked-back Cobra Starship electro. It feels very now and very on.” Since then the band has attracted the attention of press and blogs, amassed 3500+ followers on Instagram, and opened for well known Toronto acts like MONOWHALES and FXRRVST. Bon Villan opened up about the songs, saying “they’re about growing up in the digital era and how it shaped our experiences of love and self expression.”
Bon Villan’s members Jared, Hanes, and Jules grew up writing and performing indie and alternative rock in Toronto. The three bonded over their new found taste for electronic music and dove into the world of computers and synthesizers, discovering their sound in the process. The group was recognized by FACTOR and was funded within their first year. The “Bon Villan” EP was produced by longtime friends and collaborators Jordan Circosta and Zach Zanardo (MONOWHALES) and mixed by Phil Spencer (KC Roberts, MONOWHALES, Most People).
In the coming months, Bon Villan is expected to chart on Canadian college radio stations. In promotion of the EP, they will be making their first appearance in Montreal March 15th supporting Syzzors. In April, the band will be releasing their first music video for the song “When I Came Up” and will host a hometown showcase in its promotion. 2018 is set to be a big year for Bon Villan.
