The London-bred, Los Angeles-based band, BONES UK are vocalist/guitarist Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg, who unapologetically speak their truth and combine the disconnect between status quo and the glorious world inside their heads through heavy rock riffs and rough-edged electronics. Their self-titled debut album released July, 2019 includes a cover of David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid of Americans”, accumulating a total of 20M+ streams worldwide to date and earning them their first GRAMMY nomination in Best Rock Performance for the highly acclaimed song, “Pretty Waste”. The anthemic album magnifies beauty complexity, toxic masculinity and music-scene sexism with empowering lyrics.  Rosie and Carmen had the freedom to record the album anywhere in an avant-garde form such as in cars, bathrooms, and basements to capture a specific sound and vision unique to BONES UK.  The duo had an extensive 2019 of touring with Bush, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains, The Cult, The Struts, Tom Morello, Grandson and Simple Creatures and, appearing on The Howard Stern Show
