“It’s Me Robin” By Bernice

Bernice have shared a new video for “It’s Me Robin.” The Toronto band released their new LP, Eau de Bonjourno on March 5th, via Telephone Explosion/figureight records. Bernice includes musician/songwriter Robin Dann and longtime collaborators Thom Gill (keyboards, guitar), Philippe Melanson (e-percussion and drums), Daniel Fortin (bass) and Felicity Williams (voice). On Eau de Bonjourno, the band worked with producer Shahzad Ismaily, the multi-instrumentalist who has worked with artists as varied as Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Elvis Costello, Iggy Pop, John Zorn, and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.

Eau de Bonjourno, according to Dann, “openly plays with the shape of a pop song,” drawing on the band members’ backgrounds in jazz, subverting rhythmic formulas, and resting in grooves that sit just outside of predictable. Instead of letting instruments take extended solos, the tone is set on opener “Groove Elation” with brief blurts of synthesized sax, patient passages of space, or clusters of beats, tenderly held together by Dann and Williams’ intimate vocals.
