I first fell for Bonnie Banane‘s peanut butter smooth r’n’b croons when hearing her swoon over Myth Syzer‘s ‘Bonbon A La Menthe‘ cut. Since then, I’ve kept my ears peeled for any new developments from the young French songstress.
Her inimitable swagger eases through her more recent work, such as ‘Champs Elysees‘ with Waltaa, a sensual track in which she channels her inner Missy Elliot to great effect. So when hearing she had just dropped a new EP, I was looking forward to hearing in which sonic direction she would take it.
‘Soeur Nature‘ is as smooth as they come, with Bonnie Banane singing in her native French for most of the record, besides on ‘Affection’, a warm and sultry ballad in which she bemoans the difficulty of modern love.
The EP is short and snappy, with four tracks, but that’s just enough to dive into the mystical mind of Bonnie Banane and get a snippet of what she’s all about. It should just wet your appetite for a full length debut album, coming soon I hope. Until then, feast your ears on ‘Soeur Nature‘ and cop it here, if you dig what you hear.
