Welsh singer and songwriter Edie Bens returns with a gorgeous new release that further marks this talent as one to watch for in 2023.
Fusing elements of country with indie, ‘Head Over Heels’ is an emotive piece of music that was inspired by the cycle of falling in and out of love.
“‘Head Over Heels” is a song about falling in love, getting hurt, and doing it all over again. There’s so much beauty in the cyclic nature of heartbreak and I wrote this song as a reminder that most pain is temporary.”
To date, this artist has picked up praise from the likes of BBC Radio 1, The Line of Best Fit and WTHB. Bens will go on tour next month supporting Rae Morris, with the dates listed below.
Edie Bens is a Welsh singer and songwriter who, at 21-years of age, is releasing some of the most promising indie-pop sounds to emerge from the UK.
‘Therapist’ is only Bens’ second single, yet the track showcases an artist who has the ability to pair beautifully melodic songs with thoughtfully written lyricism.
“’Therapist’ is about my uni boyfriend. We started seeing each other mainly because of the convenience and the familiarity of being housemates. It didn’t last very long as we were a terrible fit. And he was quite controlling. I was so scared to end things at first for fear of hurting his feelings despite knowing it was making me deeply unhappy. Writing this song was a way of me taking back my own narrative and happiness.”
To date, this rising starlet has collaborated with the likes of Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Flyte, while also touring alongside COIN and Felice Brothers among others.
