TUNE Boniface - Dear Megan
Track: Dear Megan
Impact Date: 18th August 2018
Label: Transgressive Records
Boniface is pleased to announce details of a new single ‘Dear Megan’ available digitally now through Transgressive Records.
Produced alongside Steph Marziano (Radiohead, Alvvays), ‘Dear Megan’ is a compelling sojourn into this promising young Canadian’s inner psyche, with a breathless payoff. Fast, frenetic, and smothered in melody, it’s quickly becoming apparent that Boniface knows how to deliver instant knockouts.
Micah Visser (aka Boniface): “This one is special for me. I wrote it when I had just moved out of my parents’ house and I was feeling so overwhelmed and a little bit reckless. It was the middle of summer and I was happy but also filled with a lot of anxiety and it helped to go out and be surrounded by people. I was nervous and excited and trying to channel it all into my writing. I think that’s what the song is about really, being overwhelmed by the future but embracing the moment. Really believing in it.”
Named after the Winnipeg neighbourhood in which he grew up, Boniface spent his childhood learning how to play a wealth of instruments until he could no longer remember when he stopped covering other people’s songs and began writing his own. Recent cuts ‘I Will Not Return As A Tourist’ and ‘Phantom Limbs’ have received critical acclaim from the likes of; NME, DIY, Wonderland, Best Fit, Dork and Clash.
Following appearances at SXSW, The Great Escape and Reeperbahn - plus a run of dates in support of Lo-Moon - Boniface will be touring across US and EU this Autumn, including a headline show at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen
6th November - Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen
