press release: BONNY DOON, hailing from Detroit, Michigan are touring to promote their new self titled full length record on esteemed indie DIY label Salinas Records. Fronted by two distinct but complementary songwriters, "Bonny Doon" is full of breezy, contemplative tunes that hit and flow with a summery twang ready to brighten and warm any mood.
Early praise for Bonny Doon: “…Bonny Doon is indie folk perfection, 11 songs that are somehow both sun and shadow, swathing listeners in the pleasant ache of longing.” Detroit Metro Times
“It’s an impressive bit of songwriting that marks Bonny Doon’s Bill Lennox as a worthy torchbearer for figures like David Berman, Bill Callahan, and Stephen Malkmus.” Stereogum
“…proof that Detroit’s softer rock bands deserve as much attention as the loudest ones.” Pitchfork
“Bonny Doon, a rock band from Detroit, makes songs that are a little sad and a little psychedelic. The vibe reminds me of some of my favorite freak folk records…” The FADER
“…Bonny Doon, built around the songwriting duo of Bill Lennox and Bobby Colombo, isn't descended either from The Stooges' hard rock or from Motown. Instead, the band boasts a mix of hazy pop gems that gather strength from Lennox's sharp lyrics.” NPR’s World Cafe
“Loose and languid country rock isn't the first music style that comes to mind when Detroit pops up in conversation. But while Bonny Doon sound like they could come from the beaches of California or the woods of Massachusetts, over the last few years, the four-piece have established a solid position in the Detroit music scene.” Noisey
“Sunlit arrangements, at times freewheeling and at others resigned, mask lyrics of longing, apathy, and ‘contentment in simply letting go.’” Hype Machine “…weariness and finding ways to accept it and move on, if possible, inform a large part of the sound and themes of Bonny Doon.” The 4O5
