Listen: Boniface – ‘I Will Not Return As A Tourist’

Canadian songwriter with a real sense of poetry...

Canadian newcomer Boniface has shared new track 'I Will Not Return As A Tourist'.

Still only 21 years old, the startlingly gifted artist has a sweeping poetry to his pop approach, a deep well of emotion from which to draw.

New song 'I Will Not Return As A Tourist' swings between two poles, the immediacy of pop and a yearning for something deeper.

It's mirrored in the lyrics, too, which tell of endless roaming, all while reiterating the desire to settle down. Boniface tells Clash:

"It’s one of the first songs I ever wrote, and it kept popping up and kept being relevant to my life. It’s a song about feeling kind of restless and feeling a little bit helpless, like you’re more of a spectator in your own life. The line ‘I will not return as a tourist’ is a resolution to be more active in your own life and wanting to be a participant and not an observer."
