Bio

The Bonnie Doons are an alternative-rock band from Brisbane. Taking inspiration from artists such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ocean Alley, Hendrix and Oasis; they create a uniquely Australian sound of surf-rock-reggae fusion.

This energetic group of lads have been building a buzz in the Brisbane music scene since playing their first show mid-2017. They gained a strong local following after performing at a host of parties and live music venues from the Sunshine Coast down to Byron Bay, and supported Drop Legs for their ‘Self Help’ album tour along the east coast.

Their debut single ‘Catch Me’ was released late 2017. Instant attention from the local scene had the band playing regular Brisbane shows and opening for Wolfmother in December of 2017. With a brief hiatus mid-2018 and the loss of their original drummer, the boys quickly returned to take the victory at The Brightside’s Battle of the Bands competition, and shortly following supported Bootleg Rascal on the Brisbane leg of their ‘Anonimo’ album tour.

With the release of their debut EP ‘Face to Face’ set for March 2019, followed by a handful of live shows to launch it, this eccentric up-and-coming Brisbane band is well worth keeping an eye (and ear) on.

This tune has finesse.

I loved the chilla vibes of the verse at the start, the interesting chord progression (little jazzy vibe there), the way that it builds and the join in chorus vibes. So good.
