With every release, Bonbon Anglais impresses me more and more. Now on his fourth release of the year–his third of the summer–he switches gears, showing a different side with an emotionally-charged ballad entitled “Clear As Day.”
Where prior releases like “All Along”
have had a little more of a warm, danceable feel, Anglais slows the tempo on “Clear As Day.” The swirling, string-engined backdrop has a softer, melancholic feel which really echoes Anglais’ palpable emotion. His powerful performance lends a real sense of authenticity to his existential perspective; you can really feel
him on this one.
The more warm and vibrant cuts, may prove an easier listen, but “Clear As Day” proves Anglais knows when, and how, to connect on a deeper, more emotional level.
