Detroit's Bonny Doon delivered one of last year's most delightfully surprising debut albums early last year with their self-titled record. It was a particular novelty because the members cut their teeth playing in bands like TYVEK and Growing Pains, bands known for their rugged sound - but Bonny Doon shuffled out of that scene with a much more laid back heart-on-their-sleeves melodicism in the mold of Wilco or Ryan Adams.

When we spoke to the band's Bill Lennox a few months ago, he told us that Bonny Doon had recorded their second album already, captured in the beautiful Key Club on Lake Michigan. Today they have officially revealed the details of the details of the album, which is called Longwave, and will be coming out through their new label, Woodsist, on 23rd March.

As a glimpse of what's to come on Longwave, Bonny Doon have released the song 'I Am Here (I Am Alive)'. It continues in the same, instantly amiable tone that was so winning on Bonny Doon, but over the course of its five minutes it shows off a more patient and meditative songwriting sensibility. It's a definite broadening of their sound, which suggests that Longwave is going to be an involving and compelling listen.

Check out 'I Am Here (I Am Alive)' below.

You can pre-order Longwave here ahead of its March 23rd release.
