Bonnie Trash (Guelph, ON) is the grungy, psych-goth project of twin sisters Emmalia and Sarafina Bortolon-Vettor. They mix communication theory, social commentary, horror, and their ancestral Italian folklore into their heavy yet pop-laden music. Since the release of Ezzelini’s Dead in 2017, Bonnie Trash has taken this project to many festivals in Ontario, Quebec, and East Coast Canada. Bonnie Trash are ready to record their first full length, Malocchio.

Directed by Sarafina Bortolon-Vettor, shot and edited by Liam Magahay, animations by Steph Yates, and set design by Emmalia Bortolon-Vettor.

Shades Of You” and “I Am A Ball Of Fire” are two new songs featured on a 10″ split LP with experimental Guelph musician, M. Mucci on Tall House Recording Co. You can listen to the tracks and purchase a vinyl below. Limited copies are available. 12/06/2019.

Bonnie Trash’s newest EP is based on the folk tales of Ezzelino III da Romano and the Ezzelini family. Ezzelino was a medieval tyrant in our ancestral town of San Zenone degli Ezzelini, Italy. He was said to be a cannibal. We, humans, are obsessed with having to know everything about everyone and anything that has to do with everything. Eating every piece thrown at us. The lust to consume is at an all-time high. We are becoming cannibals by consuming each other’s thoughts and words — real or fake. We must consume ourselves in order to transform.



Our second run of tapes come in rubine red with the added translation of ‘Maria.’ Email us at to place an order. 


T-shirts come in a range of small-xl on a black cotton unisex shirt with an 8″ X 8″  image of the Ezzelini’s Dead cover. Included is a digital download code + art + translations of Maria’s stories. Email us at to place a t-shirt order.


Ezzelini’s Dead can be purchased on a PWYC basis on bandcamp.


We are currently working on our full length record, Malocchio.
