Discovery: Benedict

Benedict is an indie pop artist from Amsterdam in the Netherlands whose new track Sweet Sister is an understated anthem.

The track is characterised by cantering drums, guitar and string medleys and effortless vocals. Relaxed verses give way to a sweeping chorus that will echo in your head long after the final, lingering note is played. The track tells the story of Benedict’s relationship with his sister, a cancer survivor, and memories of a world that existed before we all entered ‘survival mode’ last year.

Fans of Bruce Springsteen or The National will find something to love from Benedict. Check out Sweet Sister below.
