Bonneville embrace the vintage in fun-filled retro soul classic 'Boogeyman'

In their latest offering, 'Boogeyman,' Bonneville invites listeners on a mesmerizing journey into the soulful depths of 70s R&B. Extracted from their sophomore album 'Flying Machine,' this track emerges as a vibrant tapestry, weaving together elements of funk and soul, encapsulating the raw essence of live musicality.

Comprising the duo of Jeff Hayashi and Wes McGee, Bonneville crafts a sonic landscape that not only celebrates the sonic aesthetics of yesteryears but also weaves a cautionary narrative. Drawing parallels between contemporary media and the myth of The Boogeyman, the duo eloquently articulates parental caution in the face of modern temptations through rich, expressive vocals and raw instrumentation.

"This track leans a little more old school than the others, and I wanted to incorporate strings and capture that late 70’s east coast R&B movie sound."

Inspired by icons like Bobby Womack, The Spinners, and Tower of Power, Bonneville embarks on a quest to reimagine the past while sculpting a timeless sound that marries post-disco nuances with neo-soul influences. 'Flying Machine,' their sophomore album, stands as a vibrant testament to this pursuit, showcasing a mosaic of tracks that usher Bonneville into a new musical chapter. Check it out now.
