Bonnie Stewart under her moniker Bonniesongs has signed to Small Pond Records, who will release her debut album Energetic Mind, due out on September 6th.
Of the song she says “I wrote it on an extremely hot summer’s day in my very small sweaty music room at my house in Sydney. All I wanted to do was be at the beach having refreshingly cold things (like ice cream…) but I was too hot to do anything about it.”
“Sometimes, no matter how sleepy or useless to the world you are, when you get a fun riff happening a new burst of energy can push past the sweat and laziness and you can manage to rock out. It’s about fun, summer, friends, ice cream, being silly and not taking yourself too seriously. Also my favourite flavour is actually mint choc NOT vanilla, but it didn’t work as well…”
It’s got this arid indie rock feel about it, with the harmonies that surround Stewart’s breathy (but lovely) vocals have you gasping for more. Check out the accompanying video , where unsurprisingly maybe, plenty of Ice Cream is consumed.
