Mental health and acceptance
‘A Place (Inside My Head)’ unfolds as a cinematic experience that ripples with dreamy electronic atmospheres. A storm of noise and chillingly sinister soundscapes cut in to disturb the equilibrium representing a level of inner turmoil.
Bonze said about “A Place (Inside My Head) is essentially a song about mental health and acceptance. In a world that can be so focused on psychological positivity (at times; toxically) and pretending like we’re all making progress; my third Single of the year is about that place inside my head where it feels like no matter how much progress I seem to make on the surface, there is always a part of me that feels that things could be improved or that they just can’t or won’t get better.
I feel that others could connect with this, as we all have inner critics and sad parts of ourselves to some extent. “It always was and always will be”, a place that feels like one is going in circles and things are not getting better and how it is okay to feel and accept that, despite the world professing that mental positivity is the only answer.
‘A Place (Inside My Head)’ is about how we can get out of denial by embracing this place in our head that says”nothing’s getting better”, only then can we look at what actually could be better and feel fully integrated as people instead of avoiding this inner, seemingly negative, place.”
Bonze, real name Jack Reardon, spends his days working as a trained psychotherapist, and these themes intrude on his music. Driven by internal passions, Bonze is pushing himself towards excellence utilising combined music experiences that span back more than a decade. A full album is incoming, while a London concert date in March 2022 introduced his ambitious plans for an immersive live experience. He’s an artist with incredibly deep roots in music, previously working as an A&R, a guest songwriter, and a top-line artist. Bonzes singles to date have been featured on the catwalk of London Fashion Week, enjoyed airplay on BBC Introducing London and featured online by the likes of Clash, Wonderland, CLOUT and Rolling Stone (India). His 2020 release ‘Heroin(e)’ was remixed by dance royalty Draper and has reached over one-hundred-thousand plays on SoundCloud and counting.
Bonze creates a mesmerising musical landscape that pivots between underground dance and revelatory songwriting that recalls everyone from Jai Paul and Metronomy through to The 1975s. Bonze continues to rise from the shadows with his own unique brand of mind-blowing exploratory pop.
