a breath-taking burst of songwriting creativity that’s steeped in warm melodies and intricate Americana musicality.

Benedict Benjamin is Ben Rubinstein, formerly of The Mariners Children and Peggy Sue. ‘ain’t easy’ - the first single from ‘Truant’ - a driving and melodic piece of sixties influenced garage rock. After writing and recording his debut, Ben turned to a more full-band sound for his second album. The early sixties Everly Brothers influences are still present in the melodies, but now there is an urgency and grit to the instrumentation that sits somewhere between The Velvet Underground and Tom Petty or more recent forbears such as Kevin Morby and Angel Olsen.
