From the ashes of a indie pop band, after a key musical collaborator left music to become a priest instead, solo electronic artist Vonica arose initially in 2018, with debut track “Ai”; the drifting summery beat mash being inspired by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. Shortly after the 4 track EP, Sol De Nit, came, spearheaded by bouncy lead track “Swing State”, the video for which can be seen here (dir Beatrix Blaise). Around that time a plethora of hot shows were performed supporting the likes of Baio (Vampire Weekend), Pick a Piper (Caribou) and tik tok sensation Eyedress. A short UK support tour of Friendly Fires was only topped by an epic 1000 capacity rave up with Com Truise at Oval space in east London.
Fast forward through a global pandemic and now in 2022 the long gestating “If You’re New Here Dance” 4 track EP is due for release on 13th May, led by the addictive and featuring some great female vocal to forthcoming single “Some Swim, Some Pray” courtesy of Sonia Bernado, which we are pleased to premiere the video today. The often humorous video boasts some stunning cinematography that immerse you into the story that fits the sports driven story perfectly.
