Detroit three-piece Bonny Doon has been through a lot since the June 2023 release of their ANTI- Records debut ‘Let There Be Music’; drummer Jake Kmiecik underwent major surgery, resulting in remission of his Crohn’s Disease, and when vocalist / guitarist Bill Lennox tragically lost his father in a car accident, the band was a source of safety and comfort. Combined with vocalist / guitarist Bobby Colombo moving back to their hometown after a few years in New York City, “The lineup has coalesced with everyone being in Detroit for the first time in a long time,” he explained.

From that place of intimacy comes their first new song of 2024, “Clock Keeps Ticking.”Clock keeps ticking, I don’t know, it’s as simple as that,” said Lennox. “We’ve been through a lot the past few years and it seems like there’s barely time to process it. But you keep going and a lot keeps happening and yet there’s all these things you may never get to. So it’s celebration, it’s grief, and it’s holding on to dreams all living together.”

Recorded with frequent Kevin Morby collaborator Sam Cohen, “Clock Keeps Ticking” is the band’s first-ever collaboration with an outside producer. 

Bonny Doon has created this immersive world with an elevated mood that the audience will so easily become infatuated with. There is a lightness to their vision, with the lyrics portraying a more melancholic theme, the brighter tones dazzle and lift the course. Another track that carves this timeless feel.
