Lisandro “Pato” Aloi‘s project Bonson Berner mixes the modern sounds of South America with a fresh electro-tinged take on classic new wave. The band’s sophomore album Reflection is out this week. It displays Aloi’s intimate, brooding and passionate nature, making it his most personal album to date. The reverberating title track and the album’s first single “Traveling,” echo a fresh direction while “Esta Noche en el Bar” is a sultry stroll on the wild side with a euphoric sheen. Riding creativity and emotion, the prolific band has quickly captured and nuanced their idiosyncratic sound. This is a project that is primal and scientific, melancholic and eager, global and enigmatic.
