song: "I Am Here (I Am Alive)" - Bonny Doon
Bonny Doon released an incredible self-titled debut last year and they're set to follow it up with another album — Longwave out 3/23 on Woodsist. Before the album officially hits our ears, the Detroit outfit shared first single "I Am Here (I Am Alive)." It's a slow and soft, five and half minutes, the familiar, warm twang first found on their debut emerging once again in a meandering moment that plays out just so perfectly. The unhurried pacing, the picturesque honesty and hopes to figure it all out flow blissfully through your ears; their vocals more spoken than sung backed by folksy strings. It's the perfect welcome to whatever's ahead for the band; their easygoing approach inviting you to sit and stay awhile with their music.
