This week, I'm shining a spotlight on Bonnie by LA's Cuffed Up! In a recent interview with buzzbands.la, the band said of the song,
... through the eyes of Bonnie (of Bonnie & Clyde fame), in an alternative universe where Clyde selfishly leaves Bonnie for dead. Bonnie is arrested and she decides to give Clyde up to the cops out of pure spite. Not because he left her in a dangerous situation — purely because of the end of their romantic, albeit toxic relationship.
The song is the first release from their forthcoming EP titled Asymmetry. The record will be out on October 23rd and is available for pre-order here.
I hope you were able to listen and maybe found a few new artists you were into. If not, you'll have another chance this Saturday night from 9 pm-12 am. Follow Indies Only on Instagram for an advanced look at some of the music coming each week!
