Music video by Chance Waters performing Bonnie. (C) 2013
In the recently region-unlocked video for "Bonnie," the second single from Australian MC sensation Chance Waters ft. The Griswolds, we are given a glimpse into the world of what may be the titular "Bonnie," or simply a young woman being saved by music. Ostensibly on the cusp of leaving a lover, the heroine paces her apartment like a tigress, unsure of her next move, but defiantly in charge of her situation.
The video is the perfect companion piece to the multi-talented Chance Waters' "Bonnie," the MC's collaboration with Sydney indie-poppers The Griswolds. The song blurs lines with pop hooks, harmonies, swathes of live instrumentation and world class production from Adelaide producer One Above (Hilltop Hoods).You can hear elements of Lily Allen crossed with Macklemore, crossed with the jubilation of such modern pop upstarts as Capital Cities.
The second single from Waters' upcoming LP on Island Records, "Bonnie" is a celebration of life, and a reflection of the joy and artistic growth Waters has experienced in a short amount of time. The video also speaks to the uncertainty of life and love, but the healing power that music can offer during difficult decisions. This mentality has served Waters well, striking while the iron is hot and with his new studio album well and truly underway, Chance has announced an exclusive worldwide publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Australia, as well as a partnership for his label, 'I Forget, Sorry!' with Island Records Australia. "Quite simply, these are the best songs I've written," says Waters. "I can't wait to share them with the world."
