Bona Fide Federation have created fresh and innovative music with an original line up of piano, vocals, cello, electric bass and drums. They launch their indie-pop debut single ‘Festival’ on the 17th of June in the lead up to the Sea Sessions 2011, where they performed on the festival’s main stage. Bona Fide Federation supported ‘O Emperor’ on their 'Hither Thither' tour and ‘Fred’ in December.
Their single ‘Festival’ has been recorded and produced by Peter Lee, (co-producer with Miracle Bell) and will be available for download on iTunes and bandcamp from June 17th. ‘Festival’ has been tipped as being the sound of summer 2011.
"Mixing alternative pop, jazz and classical in a way that seems to create a genre entirely of its own, Bona Fide Federation really are to my mind the most exciting band to come out of Cork in recent years and have to be heard to be believed." (U.C.C Express)
