Bonobo is making a habit out of surprise releases.
Making use of a thumb piano, Bonobo lets fans acclimate to his new single, "Defender," with rich, organic sounds. As the song progresses, he layers in punchy drums and swirling synths to deliver a four-on-the-floor track that moonlights as an atmospheric, introspective jam.
Take a listen to "Defender" below.
