Young songstress Bonzie has revealed her first ever music video for alt-rock single “Data Blockers” on December 17th. Shot in her native city of Chicago and a few scenes filmed in NYC, Bonzie explains her concept for the “Data Blockers” video as, “I wanted to show that the infrastructures we build are outside of us. Economic infrastructures and conceptual infrastructures – like a generally accepted idea or stereotype. I wanted to externalize these things. Within the video, the person standing in the middle of the city painting the pyramid represents this. It should have more to do with the paintbrush in your own hand, the color that you choose, where you would land in a pyramid that has no bottom or top. The people in the video were portrayed how they wanted to be portrayed. I wanted to show humanity; strip everything else.”
“Data Blockers” is from the musician’s debut album Rift Into The Secret of Things out now. The 2013 released LP features a track called “Felix” with The Milk Carton Kids. In support of her debut, Bonzie has recently toured with Ivan & Alyosha, Cayucas, as well as opened for Iron and Wine and Noah and the Whale.
