Haley Bonar: Don’t I remind you of somebody somewhere subtle?

Haley Bonar | MOTH Club | 28 October 2016

Haley Bonar ends her MOTH Club show with a synth-laden rendition of The Crystals’ ‘Then He Kissed Me’.

Instead she’s assembled a full band – second guitar, keys, bass, and drums – who perfectly capture the spirit of Amber Arcades’ gorgeous ‘Fading Lines’.
