BERMUDA BONNIE






















Real tight sounds coming from Rebecca Huston, the meistro behind Bermuda Bonnie. Gorgeous vibes being orchestrated and a particular highlight is the Sun Glitters remix, released in June, combining two of my most recent favourite artists. Boundaries don't exist within this music and the ideas depicted are ethereal and eclectic, listen, listen, listen!

First off, where are you in the world right now and what're you working on?

I have just moved in with a bunch of great people in the lovely hood known as Bushwick, BK, NYC, USA, Earth, etc... I just finished a second album called Drama soon to be released on cassette via my sweet new label, Chill Mega Chill Records. Now I am scurrying to finish a Halloween song for their first ever Chiller mix (bands from the label create Halloween awesomeness in the form of song on cassette). This song started out as a creepy story about the dibbik box but then morphed into a BB tale of revenge!

Could you give a brief Bermuda Bonnie history?

Bermuda Bonnie was once a girl with fear of everything, trapped in her little box of discontent. Then she discovered tiny doors behind paintings and all that changed. Now she runs wild in the fern forest where everything is florescent and dewy. And no one calls her a cheese head.

Who did you grow up listening to?

When I was younger I really hated current music. Only Creedence, Doors, Kinks, Syd Barrett, Who, Steve Miller.... Steely Dan!

Tell us a bit about the most recent song you've written.

I have started rapping. Well, not really. It feels a little like spoke word over beats...ish. I am truly obsessed with Fiery Furnaces and Of Montreal so the idea is to say a lot of words. And tell detailed stories. The third album will be pretty different I think....

What's the strangest subject you've ever written a song about?

Let's see... Well, the first song off the new album, Drama is called Aliens Lizza! It's about that thing of when you are chilling with a friend who tries to pressure you into going over to a guys house and make-out with him but you have never done that yet (junior high shit) and you are super weirded out about it because you don't want her to know you are scared but you really don't want to do it. Then an alien ship suddenly appear above you. Everyone goes though this at some point I know.

What would you say was the perfect environment or situation to listen to your music in?

In a car maybe.

What other artists are you into at the moment?

Yacht! And Twin Sister, Born Gold, Hourglass Sea, Kisses..... My new roommate just showed me a new song that is rad. They are called Phone Tag. Very nice sounds.

Where would you love to tour?

Everywhere!

Finally, what's next for Bermuda Bonnie, future plans and such?

I really want to write a proper "tropical" dancy, feel good song or a whole albums worth of them!
