Listen: Haley Bonar’s gorgeous new song “Kill The Fun”

on April 09, 2014, 3:20pm

Singer/songwriter Haley Bonar is set to release her fifth studio album Last War on May 20th via Graveface Records. Recorded at Dave Grohl’s 606 Studio with members of Andrew Bird’s band, the forthcoming LP also features an appearance by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.

As a preview, Bonar has shared the album track “Kill The Fun”. Compared to lead single “Last War”, which was dark and brooding, “Kill The Fun” is much more jangly and dreamy. Echoing the bright guitars and synths of The Cure’s poppier fare, Bonar creates a whimsical masterclass of indie-pop songwriting. Listen in below (via Stereogum).
