Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! This week on the show I’m featuring the Brooklyn-based dream-pop trio Bonsai. They’re ethereal and haunting yet catchy and beautiful all stirred together. They’ve released a self-titled EP that goes farther in five songs than most releases can do with an hour’s worth of material.

I got a chance to talk with founding member, singer, songwriter, and guitar player Simone Stevens about treading the line between the personal and the far-reaching, making the move from acoustic to electric, and the problem of waiting for inspiration to strike. But enough words, tune in to hear songs from Bonsai’s 2014 debut EP, the self-titled Bonsai

Don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Bonsai!


Stay tuned for a brief history on bonsai trees, an after-thought meditation.
