Brooke Bentham epitomises delicateness through voice; how one may represent fragility through words sang, I shall never know. This is more than evident in Bentham’s sentimental debut single “We’ll Be Ghosts”, which muses over the salvation of an otherwise broken relationship. What truly grabs me is the tone of Bentham’s voice, which remains soft and folky, yet potent, aptly portraying the power of her lyrics: “Pull Me In // Keep Me Close // And Never Let Go,”
The release on the growing ‘Trellis Records’ marks the beginning of what could be easily recognised as the start of something incredible from this promising 18 year old from South Shields; Brooke’s purity of voice likens her to artists such as Paloma Faith, Laura Marling or Florence Welch. We would be right to consider Bentham as one ‘Under the Radar’ at the moment, but we would in stark contrast be wrong to expect stagnation; having just breezed through her first (of many) headline performance, instead expect Brooke Bentham to break through spectacularly.
“We’ll Be Ghosts” can be found on Soundcloud, Spotify and to pre-order on iTunes. Go ahead and listen, and tell friends; increased popularity means more music, and I can safely say we all want that.
