The spotlight is shining on Bonelang as they release a celestial powerful new music video for Mushroom Moon. The alternative duo have successfully delivered a fusion of hip-hop, soulful lyrics, electronic and alt-rock. The break-up style song captures a depth of emotion and a raw honest vulnerability can be felt with each spoken word. You can’t help but be drawn to this genre-defying track. Samy Language comments about the song,
“‘Mushroom Moon’ is a breakup song. It started as a deep house track but after three years of molding, it has turned into what you are hearing in this video. Everyone knows heartache and how all-consuming it can feel. Here, these elemental emotions are placed in a cosmic yet intimate setting. Common wisdom will tell you that the vastness of space would seem to make us insignificant in comparison; perhaps instead the fact that we’re the only known entities capable of such breathtaking sorrow makes our small corner of the universe the most remarkable. Our intent in one sentence would be to establish purpose behind our emotions when staring down meaninglessness.”
The video is interesting in itself as it was filmed inside Adler Planetarium based in Chicago after finding the inspiration from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. This is one of the few times anyone has ever been allowed to record inside the Adler. It was filmed in one single take. Check out the cool video here:

More about Bonelang:
Bonelang is Samy.Language and Matt Bones. The two have been making music together since the age of thirteen. Their sound borrows from genres all across the board including indie rock, jazz, and rap. For the past three years, they’ve worked ceaselessly on their debut body of work Venn Diagrams which includes three official videos, a four-part short film series, a merch line, a two-part album, and an art book.
The duo released Venn Diagrams, Pt. I, the first installment in a series entitled The Year Of The Sunflower, earlier this year on February 13, 2017. The 6-track EP was launched independently. Every song was recorded on a computer built by Bones. Bones additionally created the acoustic paneling that treats a majority of the space. Together they reside in their home studio – living and breathing their music and all that encompasses it. They also bring their friends Andrew Lawrence on keys and Zack Marks on drums along for the ride. Samy.Language states “Recording Venn Diagrams in the home studio has shaped our process into a very meticulous mode of thinking and working. It gifts us pressure-free work space which is an invaluable thing.”
Venn Diagrams aims to celebrate and nurture self-awareness, encouraging one to adopt a more full-bodied disposition of compassion, empathy, and love. Mathematically speaking, Venn Diagrams illustrates relationships between overlapping groups. Personalized, Bonelang’s Venn Diagrams stands to say: “Let us focus more on what we have in common than what we do not.”
