Sydney duo Bon Chat, Bon Rat have announced the imminent release of their brand new EP, Burning Palms, coming Tuesday, 26th November. Labelled an “exploration of the dichotomy between analogue and digital,” the eponymous first single is an observation of this struggle.
Following a chance workplace meeting, Reece Cooper and Russell Smith embarked on what is now a four-year creative partnership, with a view to crafting a unique and innovative brand of pop music that employs looping polyrhythms, strong melodic elements and airy harmonies.
With influences as diverse as Midnight Oil and The Knife, Bon Chat, Bon Rat’s new EP is sure to be a unique and forward-thinking slice of Australian pop music. Readers can check out the duo’s latest single, Burning Palms, as well as the accompanying video, below.
