UK singer-songwriter Alan Bonner demonstrates unique nocturnal sound with new single ‘Night Music’
UK singer-songwriter Alan Bonner releases new single Night Music. The title track from his new album of the same name – a smoky, dimly-lit collection of songs inspired by London and its nocturnal inhabitance.
The single, a lament on urban decay, Grindr hook-ups, and social disconnect set against a back drop of icy synths and a pounding electro beat is inspired by English 80's electro pop artists like Soft Cell and The Human League.
Bonner sings "There's a face on my phone, makes me feel less alone, when I'm stumbling home late at night. There's a face on my phone, makes me feel less alone, finds me strangers to bone in the night, Just to feel something. Just to feel something, but I feel nothing."
