Following last month’s release of “Thorns,” her dark and gritty new single, pop hitmaker extraordinaire, Bonnie McKee returns today an official video,” premiering exclusively on NYLON. Shot in Los Angeles using a $150 vintage Panasonic VHS camera, the new video arrives hot on the heels of Bonnie’s recent sold out show at The Peppermint Club in West Hollywood, and was directed by Darren Craig (Rihanna, Kesha, Shakira).
Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as a “finger-snapping bop” with Billboard lauding it as a ”brooding” and “more polished self-aware form of alternative pop,” “Thorns” offers fans a first glimpse of what’s to come from the Californian artist since the release of her critically acclaimed “Bombastic” EP. Talking about the new single, Bonnie explains. “I wanted to do something unexpected. Everyone has heard my signature fun, bright, splashy pop bops, now it’s time for them to get a taste of my darker side.”
