For Fans Of: Tycho, Four Tet, Caribou, Moderat
The critics are saying: “Bonobo has constructed a bittersweet yet hopeful companion to this late stage of the pandemic, holding space both for grief and a blissful renewal." - The Skinny

Album: Are We Gonna Be Alright?
For Fans Of: Pale Waves, Shura, The Japanese House, Maggie Rogers
The critics are saying: “Like all good parties, there's an overwhelming buzz of feeling alive that's reflected sonically, jumping from one hook-laced chorus to another, with lyrics like honest drunken confessions and whole-hearted discussions about life, love and every other struggle in between." - The Skinny
See them live: Bodega Nottingham 20th Jan, Thekla Bristol 25th Jan.
Single: Am I Really Going To Die
For Fans Of: Bloc Party, Editors, We Are Scientists, Kasabian
The band's Charles Cave says: “‘Am I Really Going to Die’ is a song with familiar subject matter for White Lies but a new chapter musically. It’s the first part of a two-song narrative about a self-important hot-shot given a terminal diagnosis, and the various stages of his coming to terms with it. ‘AIRGTD’ is loosely inspired by the great Danny Huston’s character in ‘Ivans XTC’, and musically by ‘Station to Station’ era Bowie.”
See them live: Rock City Nottingham 10th March, O2 Academy Bristol 19th March
Single: Things will be fine
For Fans Of: Hot Chip, Klaxons, LCD Soundsystem, Django Django
Frontman Joe Mount describes the video as: “sort of pseudo role-play therapy session in which we all re-visit our teenage selves. Everyone ended up more scarred than they did before making it…apart from Michael and his f*#king guinea pigs.”
See them live: O2 Academy Bristol 4th May, O2 Academy Oxford 5th May
