This is absolute quality from Dutch artist Benedict. Finish The Wine is a song thing of beauty. Like a mix of The National and Beirut. Out of 300 songs sent to us over the weekend this was an instant stand-out. It is just THAT good.
Benedict is from Amsterdam and is making solid sounds over there. I genuinely get excited upon hearing new talent like this. I end up sending the tunes I find to a couple of friends on WhatsApp no matter what time it is. They are probably sick of me by now. It’s safe to say the Benedict was one of the artists I sent around this week. What a track.
He has a new release on Nov 1st, exciting. I’m not going to write any more, please listen to this one below. Thanks.
* He is a dead ringer for Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman) in the video by the way, it made me chuckle*
FFO: Nick Cave, Brian Ferry, Tom Waits, The SlowShow, Thindersticks, Future Islands
