Something wicked this way comes

"You are completely on your own tip," said Anne Mac, interviewing Bonzai on her Radio 1 show earlier tonight. The Irish-American singer certainly has a unique style - equally influenced by The Prodigy, the Chemical Brothers, Beyonce and Ashanti.

"It is a bit mad," Bonzai conceded. "I listen to a lot of different music."

Her new single, No Rest For The Wicked, certainly doesn't pull its punches. In just three minutes, Bonzai packs in a couple of silky hooks, a subterranean bassline, two drawling raps, a crunching breakbeat, hyperspectral acid squelches, and the best use of a guiro since Tone Loc's Wild Thing.

It was Annie Mac's hottest record, and for good reason.

If you like the sound of that, Bonzai's just finished her new EP, Sleepy Hungry, which should appear on iTunes overnight, courtesy of Mura Masa's Anchor Point Records.
