Back in the summer of 2017, we premiered Bonnie Trash’s cannibalistic drag thriller of a video for “Meat and Great“ starring the perfectly poised and seasoned performer Pearle Harbour. It’s a track off the Guelph band’s grungy guitar-driven debut EP Ezzelini’s Dead, which was inspired by a dark familial tale of a medieval tyrant, asking listeners “how do WE consume each other?”
Now with many an acclaimed festival set and a bevy of fans under their belts, the goth-noir avant-rock project by twin sisters Sarafina Troy and Emmalia Vash Bortolon-Vettor are back and more bad-ass than ever. We’re stoked to premiere the video for “Shades of You”, the first single off of Bonnie Trash’s upcoming first full-length album.
Titled A Call to Aradia, Bonnie Trash’s debut LP is inspired by the feminine power of water and the social dynamics of power in relation to how the digital voice is consumed and amplified. The twins mix communication theory, social commentary, horror and their ancestral Italian folklore into their tunes, calling this upcoming new album “a modern exploration of oppression in the context of consumption, featuring a sonic sea of womxn.” Regarding this first single? The Ozzy inspired twins simply say…
“May a sea of womxn tip the raft of patriarchy and overwhelm his lungs. Let it drown.”
Watch it below.
“Shades Of You” is featured on their limited 10″ split LP with M. Mucci which drops today with Tall House Recording Co. The split also features new Bonnie Trash track “I Am A Ball Of Fire”. Grab it here now. You can also catch Bonnie Trash live tomorrow in Toronto, December 7th at The Baby G with Future Peers and World News.
