Slinky Indie Pop is the calling card of Benny Sings and that remains true here on ‘Music’. Featuring guest appearances by Tom Misch, Mac DeMarco, and Emily King along with others, this is a collaborative affair that remains streamlined throughout.
Elegant and warm, relaxed but on task, solid beats meet simple melodies in a way that allows each track to showcase their vocals without hanging on them. It’s a deft balancing act that reflects the skill that has gone into the songwriting. As a sax solo enters on ‘Run Right Back’ it feels as natural as KYLE’s rap vocals on previous track ‘Kids’. These cornerstone features of individual tracks dissolve into details of the album as a whole resulting in an album that crosses genres and blends styles and couldn’t be more accurately titled.
