BONHOM – SEX WAR

Los Angeles based songwriting duo Bonhom is a new pop project co-created by James Coleman and Diwon. The two produce their own unique brand of epic dream like pop which you may have heard on your favorite TV programs. Bonhom recently had their song “Live for the Now” featured in the season premier of Witches of Eastend. Their single NYE has been picked up by Indaba Music and is currently being remixed by over 35 countries.

With Bonhom’s forthcoming album, Sex War, set to be January 20th, the two defy genres and labels blending elements of folk, pop, hip hop, edm and rock into an unmistakable sound that is Bonhom.

Bonhom blends pop, rock, and electronic elements to create innovative tracks ranging from their NYE with its slow build from a bass-driven atmospheric refrain into a massive rock hook, to infectious party anthems like “Animal”  and “Top of the World”, while songs like “Your Eyes” draw inspiration from Bjork and Depeche Mode.  Bonhom’s singles, “Live for Now” and “Get Up, Stand Up (Sign of Life)” embody their main message and music which compel listeners to live in the moment, let go of the past, and embrace the future. With a fantastic fusion of their musical talents, Coleman and Diwon produce the songs of which dreams are made.
