BENEE’s dreamy alt-pop mixes her deeply heartfelt reflections on life in suburban Auckland, New Zealand with offbeat and often whimsical lyrical twists, all produced with a technicolor ear for cooked beats and unpredictable hooks. The 23-year-old broke through in 2020 with ‘Supalonely, her global hit with 4 billion streams, and her follow-up Hey u xdebut album was a vibrant musical world with guests ranging from Grimes and Lily Allento Gus Dapperton and Muroki (another New Zealand teen BENEE has since signed to her own label, Olive). It was listed as one of Billboard’s “25 Best Pop Albums of 2020,” noting that BENEE “contemplates the woes of Gen Z with a keen ear for choruses and arrangements that oscillate between indie rock and hyperpop.” Stereogum praised its “quirky but impeccably produced pop music” and Vogue called it “13 tracks of heavenly indie-alt-pop.” Platinum Awards piled up around the globe, and she performed ‘Supalonely’ — live from New Zealand — on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, and Late Night with Seth Meyers and recorded a heartfelt live version of album opener ‘Happen To Me’ for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Last year, BENEE returned with her 2022 Lychee EP, with her song ‘Doesn’t Matter’ revealing the singer’s journey through the emotional clatter of 2021. A hefty touring schedule followed, leading into new music in 2023 and kicking off with ‘Green Honda’.
