Bonelang is a promising electronic music duo/art-rock band I discovered two weeks ago with this addictive song, American Playboy, released as a single, and also off from a long-play album called; Saintmaker released in 2020. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, Bonelang has started their careers with an EP release called; Set Theory EP (2017). Since then, the band released ten singles; Mushroom Moon (2017), Sunflower Drips (2017), Red Dye #2 (2018), Anvil (2019), Yellow Teeth Da Di (2019), Astronaut (2019), Plateauer (2019), American Playboy (2020), Like a Bird in a Jet Engine (2020), Fox and the Hound (2020), two EPs; Venn Diagrams, Pt. I (2017), Venn Diagrams, Pt. II (2017), and two long-play albums; Sunny, Sonny (2019), and Saintmaker (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Bonelang is a very successful project, an amazing combination of a badass duo making music together for three years now. First of all, I’d like to say that they have done impressive things so far in these three years. The band has exceptional standards in everything that belongs to their empire. American Playboy is the first song I listened to by Bonelang, and their production alone was fantastic enough to get them the ticket here to Metalhead Community Magazine. Now, let me go into the details for you.
We live in a very competitive era where thousands of people are independently making releases and trying to get themselves into the professional level. I am listening to tons of bands/artists every single day, and through all these years, I developed a very healthy filter where I can easily tell who has got the magic. Bonelang is surely one of those special projects where every single detail about their mission makes perfect sense. As I mentioned above, I really liked how they planned everything for their release, creating a trilogy off from the three songs (PART I – NEWLIAN, PART II – AMERICAN PLAYBOY, PART III – SOMETHING TO FIX) and offering a short story to their listeners through music videos.
Bonelang’s music style has a delicious blend of many different elements from rock, electronic, and alternative music styles. The overall feeling is superb; it is stimulating, energetic, and groovy at the same time. The song’s dynamics took everything to the next level, making it irresistible for listeners with any taste. The composition here is not that simple and standard, as we used to hear from mainstream-oriented projects. It is quite impressive to see that Bonelang has tried to show/add their character to every detail they have, including the structure of this song. As I mentioned above, we live in an era where artists have to make a difference to make their dreams come true. This requires talent, determination, vision, hard work, professional support, and a genuine character. I can clearly see Bonelang has the necessary foundations in their music where they can easily evolve and become a specific name in their fields.
