Bonzie, otherwise known as 17-year-old singer-songwriter Nina Ferraro, only has two releases under her belt — 2010’s The Promise EP and her upcoming debut album, Rift Into the Secret Things, due May 14. But the Chicago native’s newest single, “Data Blockers,” feels like the work of a vet well-versed in whispered catharsis. The plucky six-minute epic evokes a young Chan Marshall, all narrow vocals, wordless refrains, and furious chords before the instrumentation stretches out, welcoming electronic flourishes and mournful piano. Listen below, and scroll down further for Bonzie’s upcoming tour dates.
Bonzie 2013 tour dates:
March 28 – New York, NY @ Rockwood Music Hall
March 29 – New York, NY @ Arlene’s Grocery
March 30 – New York, NY @The Living Room
