“Bonfire Man” is the latest video from the Brooklyn-based female electro-pop trio, My M.O.. This song is first single and title track off their sophomore EP Bonfire.
For a limited time only, the Bonfire EP is available for free download at the group’s bandcamp page and then will be officially released through iTunes on Unemployable Music this June.
Hailing from all points on the globe (Texas, Australia, Jamaica), My M.O. represents New York City’s convergence of cultures at its best. Erika Buestami aka Enki is a singer and rapper from Australia, who handles lead vocals and bass. Katy Walker is a veteran DJ, originally from Texas, who plays keys, contributes vocals and produces their songs. Dion Mac is a Jamaican-born rocker, who shreds guitar and adds to the medley of vocals. Together, they subtly cull their broad range of influences into a tasty indie-pop blend of ethereal beats and saucy lyrics.
My M.O. formed in 2008 after the three frontwomen met through mutual friends while residing in Brooklyn. They started regularly playing live shows on the NYC circuit and released their 6-track debut, Monkey Remix EP, on Unemployable Music in August 2010. Their music video for first single “Monkey” created a viral buzz in the blogsphere, garnering a growing fanbase and praise from critics. “My M.O. is the type of independent group that have their act together,” claims The Fader.
“Bonfire Man” and the band are featured on the latest Samsung’s GALAXY Tab VCAM commercial for a special user-created Current TV campaign. Watch below and for more information on My M.O. check out their official website, MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
