Bonobo - Stay The Same - out on Ninja Tune



Bonobo Stay The Same
Bonobo - Stay The Same
(Download/Promo CD) Ninja Tune ZENDNLS268/ZENCDS268P, 2010-06-28

The latest single to be drawn from Bonobo's breakout album, Black Sands, is the achingly beautiful Stay The Same. Featuring a vocal from Andreya Triana of devastatingly understated brilliance, Bonobo runs together woozy, off-kilter strings, rock solid, deceptively simple drumwork, a rising bassline and undorned sax-work provided by The Portico Quartet's Jack Wiley for another slice of his subtle magic. And if the sheer wondrousness of Triana's vocal is distracting you from what Si Green is up to, we also include the instrumental. The package is completed by a live version of the song recorded when Bonobo and his world-renowned live band played a set at legendary jazz club Ronnie Scott's.

Press Release :
The latest single to be drawn from Bonobo's breakout album, “Black Sands,” is the achingly beautiful “Stay The Same.” Featuring a vocal from Andreya Triana of devastatingly understated brilliance, Bonobo runs together woozy, off-kilter strings, rock solid, deceptively simple drumwork, a rising bassline and undorned sax-work provided by The Portico Quartet's Jack Wiley for another slice of his subtle magic. And if the sheer wondrousness of Triana's vocal is distracting you from what Si Green is up to, we also include the instrumental. The package is completed by a live version of the song recorded when Bonobo and his world-renowned live band played a set at legendary jazz club Ronnie Scott's.

With “Black Sands” Simon Green aka Bonobo has taken a decisive step into the big league. A critically-acclaimed record which is also selling incredibly well, Bonobo and his band have just returned from a sell-out 20 date tour of the USA, play Glastonbury this summer and the Roundhouse this autumn. His stock has never been higher, with his production skills in considerable demand and seemingly no limit to what he can do with his sweepingly emotional music.
