Queer joy and summer vibes abound on disco-house duo Crush Club’s new single “Bohanna”, with long-term collaborator and non-binary vocalist Amazonian Rockstar. Bells and rhythmic percussion introduce a track imbued with the joy of a hot summer’s day and the unbridled joy that can only come from spending a long day in the sun with friends.
As mirrored in the single artwork’s psychedelic tie-dye effect, “Bohanna” draws on tropical rhythms and the kaleidoscopic implications of city-based parties.”Bohanna, music for dancing” Amazonian Rockstar sings in the song’s refrain, their soaring vocals contributing to the Carnivalesque overtones that emanate from the song.
“Bohanna” is the first in a slew of new singles for Crush Club, the NYC duo comprised of vocalist TC Milan and producer/multi-instrumentalist Le Chev. Ever engaged in the collaboration, Crush Club have also achieved recognition for songs they have released alone: “Trust” and “We Dance” are both club mainstays.
Artist features are not the only form of collaboration for Crush Club either: the pair have recently released a series of remixes, including for Sigrid single “Burning Bridges” and Sofi Tukker mega-hit “Original Sin”.
With “Bohanna” they restate their claim as bona fide songwriters in their own right, and a flame to promising and established artists wanting to feature on their tracks.
Talking about the new single, Crush Club offered the following:
“”Bohanna” is our latest collaboration with our favorite singer Amazonian Rockstar. With this Latin-House banger we imagine the Goddess of Dance, Bohanna guiding us through these complicated times. She reminds us to love, dance, and make music forever.”
