benten – wasting time

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured US-based artist benten – he was our Track of the Week earlier in the summer.

The emerging musician is back with another impressive new single, called ‘wasting time’. As we’ve come to expect from benten, the track treats us with to effortlessly smooth sound that blends indie with pop in the most charming way imaginable.

With placements on prominent indie playlists like indie dream club and Spotify’s Fresh Finds, it’s so nice to see this promising talent beginning to gain the traction he deserves!


New Music: benten

Track of the week. We’ll admit that we know very little about American musician benten, but something tells us that this promising artist’s work will likely gain a ton of traction over the coming months.

In essence, benten’s ‘Deadly’ is short and sweet. Despite being less than two minutes in length, song’s simple melody, sincere vocals and polished bedroom-pop production makes this one of our favourite releases of the month.

Aside from his solo work, benten also plays guitar with fellow artist Nick Wagen, who is scheduled to perform at Philadelphia’s The Foundry on the 25th July – tickets available here.
