Toronto’s electro-pop trio, Bon Villan have dropped the video for their single, “When I Came Up”. When they began thinking of the video for this track, their first thought turned to their multi-talented group of friends, and the popular phrase “it takes a village”. The video includes many appearances of talented Torontonians including but not limited to cage fighting champ Melissa Karagianis, BMX trickster Zeb Dennis, multi-talented wunderkind skateboarder Staphon Boca, and local ballerina Annabelle Holland.
Lead vocalist, Jared Parker states,
“The song explores the journey of developing your skill and all the sacrifices and rewards that come with it. The grind takes your time, your energy and sometimes even your sanity. There is no one way and there is no easy way.”
“When I Came Up” is the second single from Bon Villan since their inception in 2017. Their first single, “Outta Cash” has already amassed over 24,000 streams on Spotify, and it’s not hard to see why! Give “Outta Cash” a listen after you check out “When I Came Up”.
To celebrate the release of the single and video, they will be playing a show at The Piston in Toronto on May 3. The band will perform an early headline slot at 930pm followed by special guests Waves That Stray and a DJ set by Hamilton’s SLEEPYCAT. Doors open at 8:00 pm.
Tickets are $10 in advance at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3406156 or $12 at the door.
