Bon Homme is the alter ego of Tomas Høffding, who is also known as the singer and bass player of WhoMadeWho. After playing in bands all his life and always having to make compromises, he decided to create a piece of music entirely his own -- so the Dane spent every single minute while not on tour with WhoMadeWho jamming by himself and recording tracks in his newly-equipped studio. The result is a cutting-edge record between sparkling dance pop, driving rhythms and psychedelic electronic sounds, dominated by analog synthesizers and Tomas' passionate and emotional vocals. Mainly, it makes you want to go straight onto the dancefloor -- sometimes it makes you wanna think, but it always makes you feel the music and feel the beat. Its catchy hooks and lyrics, which were written by Tomas' friend Uzi Frank and Danish poet Rolf Steensig, will get stuck in your head for ages. Without wanting to compare him to anyone, it sometimes feels like Hot Chip teamed up with Kraftwerk, with an emotionality all its own.
