“Marzipan-scented soul-folk serenades” – The Guardian ****

Los Angeles artist Kadhja Bonet has released the official video for ‘Fairweather Friend’, taken from her critically acclaimed debut record The Visitor, which is out now on
Premiering on NYLON, Bonet says of the video: “I wanted to suggest the principle dancer as an atom, accustomed to a certain kind of movement – traveling, drifting in time. The introduction of a new bond excites and changes her direction, and she has the good fortune to experience a new type of journey. The final atom is introduced, groping for a free electron. For a brief period it appears they might form a triad, but very quickly it becomes apparent the bond is stronger as two, as human chemistry can often be. The first element is left again to continue her own awkward, slow, and solitary journey. She is indivisible though, and integral. I simply bear witness.”

Commencing February 28th in Brussels, Kadhja Bonet is set to play her first European and UK dates, including a sold out Courtyard Theatre on March 7th and a free entry show the following day, March 8th, at Rough Trade East. The dates present a first opportunity to experience this spellbinding, genre-defying singer-songwriter first hand.
Kadhja Bonet’s debut mini-album The Visitor has met with widespread critical praise from outlets including The Sunday Times, The Guardian (who also included her in their Future 50), Pitchfork, NPR, Solange’s Saint Heron and others. At radio it has picked up support from Lauren Laverne, Mary Anne Hobbs, Giles Peterson, Don Letts and others.
The eight song collection is a transcendent introduction to Kadhja’s velvety voice, majestic arrangements, and a ubiquitous air of wondrous magical realism, inviting us into a world not wholly our own, where past and future meet in a parallel, yet far lovelier, present.
