Bonnie x Clyde

Does bass music always have to be about face-crushing beats? Does bad always have to be so evil? Billboard Dance Emerging Artist alumni Bonnie x Clyde think there's a lot of wiggle room in all life's possibilities, and the duo's latest single "Bad Behavior" serves to redefine the group's sound, look, feel and, hopefully, your point of view.

The single is bass-heavy but sultry, the sonic equivalent of a femme fatale. It feels dangerous as the group's designated singer Bonnie beckons you in a seductive almost-whisper, while the beat lures you down smoky hallways toward the darkest corner of the dance floor. Bonnie x Clyde call the new sound "vocal bass." Truly, "Bad Behavior" is all about growing up and owning your own power.

"We want to take you into a new world, our world, and express the fundamental truths of life, the battles, the achievements, the good and the bad emotions," the duo is quoted in a press release. "It all creates the story [of] us. This song marks the clarity and a huge change in our lives - a time when we finally decided to say 'fuck everything' and be our rawest, most authentic selves. It’s about time we step into our power and take control. It’s about sharing all sides of you, even the things people might not want to hear or see. Because that’s what we want - we want raw, blood, sweat, tears, unfiltered, bad behavior.“

It's a new era for the duo, whose dawn burns bright. Bonnie x Clyde will head out on a tour with club and festival spots to round out 2019. "Bad Behavior" is out everywhere Friday, but Billboard Dance has an exclusive listen below.
