Benbrick – “Beyond That Nothing”


A delicate synth opens, and keys come quickly afterwards on the airy “Beyond That Nothing”. The London producer/vocalist Benbrick then injects some of his own melodic¬†chords into the production, and it becomes hard to stop listening. The work is an example of auditory persuasion; there is an allure to the¬†atmosphere that is graceful and gripping. The beat itself is melodic and hypnotic. The voice on top is clear and sincere. The message is dear. There really isn’t much that Benbrick leaves behind on this intoxicating journey of his; he packs an effectively light sound into a much heavier suitcase of sound, which balances serene electronica and pop smarts with a youthful enthusiasm.
