Head music critic, Jon Pareles, features BONZIE’s new music video in The New York Times:

“Bonzie, a 21-year-old songwriter based in Chicago born Nina Ferraro, made her first album as a teenager; her second is due in May. This song is an ambitious interlude, a statement of commitment.  ‘As the surface rose,’ she sings, ‘You would stay underwater.’ More a meditation than a song, ‘As the Surface Rose’ revolves through four chords in a video that’s part conundrum, part rescue. A guy in a skinny tie pursues her, rowing into a storm. He has a  film camera, she wears a glittery dress. There are no bubbles as she breathes underwater, but she tells her story. ‘You won’t let go,’ she sings. JON PARELES”
