BONNIE DOON & MATT MIWA



Bonnie Doon is an Ottawa-based post-punk five-piece drawing inspiration from spooky beaches and pizza joints. Their debut LP Dooner Nooner was released in 2017 on vinyl via Record Centre Records and on cassette c/o Bruised Tongue. Dooner Nooner contains nine original, sludgy, surfy tunes inspired by actual events: such as the struggle of making it to brunch for noon and how it feels to brave a waterslide in a bikini. Their 2014 sold-out EP on Bruised Tongue Records An Affair to Imagine saw the debut of their west coast/punk/new wave/indie/surf of the formative days of Teenage Head, the Viletones, Flipper and the B52’s. Hear Bonnie Doon’s featured singles on Bruised Tongue’s Afterburners series and The Famine’s Pentagon Black Compilations and feature appearances on Weird Canada, Photogmusic, Ottawa Showbox, Ottawa Life, AuxTV, CitySlangRadio, Braido, TheLeSigh and Exclaim! Gracing festival stages in Ottawa (Bluesfest, Arboretum Festival, Ottawa Explosion Festival, Westfest), Guelph (KazooFest), Halifax (Obey Convention), Meaford (Electric Eclectics), Montreal (Coolfest), Calgary (Sled Island), and Detroit (BFF Fest). 2019 saw the release of a rippin music video for the sax-infused summer party jam “Panty Twister".
