Bonhom - "Be My Marilyn"

Download attachments:

With an exclusive debut on The Examiner, Bonhom's "Be My Marilyn" teases the lucid combination of dreamy sounds waiting to be discovered on their upcoming debut LP, Sex War. At first, the song seems pleasant and easy to digest, but as the arrangement takes its form so does Bonhom's subtle complexity. Combined with Nick Early's technologically savvy stop-motion visuals, "Be My Marilyn" becomes liquid journey that seems to defy space and time while incredulously never straying from the mark.

The lyrics tell a love story we all have seen, heard, and felt a thousand times and more, yet somehow this heartfelt declaration of desire feels brand new. There are moments when the deep tempo nonchalantly drags towards nirvana only to be complemented by the equally blissful sound of hooves pattering against a cobblestone street, all while electronic and acoustic instrumentation mingle with unexpected natural attraction, but it is so much more than a carefully crafted cacophony. It is morosely hopeful, anxiously bold, imaginatively real - a near inconceivable combination of polar opposites that refuses to be anything other than a  Dream Pop masterpiece.
