Downtempo Indie Pop Genius ‘Steve Benjamins’ Releases New EP ‘Sightlines’

Steve Benjamins

The new EP Sightlines from the otherworldly indie pop genius of Steve Benjamins arrives with the gentle ebb and flow that only comes from truly organic music. There is a very raw sense of humanity in Benjamins work. An artist that Indie Shuffle described as “A little bit like Justin Vernon and Michael Stipe” Benjamins is clearly something special.

After receiving critical acclaim on his first EP ‘Somewhere, Somehow’ Steve Benjamins has been able to grow his sonic soundscapes into an iconoclastic and diverse set of songs that reek of human sorrow. The man Fecking Deadly said has a “massive, massive voice that will leave you stunned” has proven with Sightlines that he has the power to be the next big thing in indie pop.

Sightlines will be released on May 15th 2015, until then you can listen to the single ‘We Used To Live’ below.

Steve Benjamins makes downtempo indie pop that feels thoughtful and melancholic. The New Lofi called him “Part James Blunt, part Patrick Watson, part Mutual Benefit, and fully unique.”

Sightlines is Benjamins 3rd EP in just over two years. Like all of his EPs, Benjamins plays almost all of the instruments on the album (piano, guitar, synths, drums, bass) and is the sole songwriter.

Fecking Deadly has said Benjamins has a “massive, massive voice that will leave you stunned”, while Repeat Button suggests he “should be heard [by anyone looking] to listen to someone not yet discovered.”
