Video Premiere: Rose Bonica – ‘Mouthful of Concrete’
Excited to premiere Rose Bonica’s self-animated video for ‘Mouthful of Concrete’, taken from her latest EP on Wet Dreams Recordings. You might remember Rose from a few months ago when she gracefully delivered her epic Dreamy Techno mixtape for KALTBLUT, but this time the unstoppable artist is back – and she has a few extra tricks up her sleeve. “When I made the ‘Mouthful of Concrete’ EP I channelled my confidence in all the things I had learnt in music, I memorialised the things I had lost and I threw out the things I’d been hoarding. I let go and made room for new things in my life. For the music video, I used that newfound space inside me to learn how to animate in Blender. After 3 months of baking, crying and failing miserably, I am proud to present the official music video for ‘Mouthful of Concrete’.” Here’s to another year of falling down, eating concrete and getting back up!

Rose Bonica’s impressive rise through the South African music scene has been prominent through her continuous raw and infectious releases, coupled with her dark and energetic creative side, it’s easy to see why she is landing herself on some of the biggest festival line ups in the country. She recently made her Berlin debut at Salon Zur Wilde Renate, playing alongside Eclair Fifi and Oliver Hafenbauer (Robert Johnson) at Savour The Moment. Her music video, “Volatile”, premiered on Boiler Room’s 4:3 and her Upperberry mix was picked by Crack Magazine for their ’10 mixes you need to hear this month’ June 2019 edition. Rose Bonica has seen growing international support from the likes of Machine Woman, Violet and was just featured in Bandcamps ‘Best Electronic Music: November 2019’ accompanied by honest and revealing words written by the great Joe Muggs. Her passion and intensity is the driving force behind her success, underneath the self- deprecating banter and nervous laughter is an artist who is aware of her capabilities.
