J Bengoy – “Hands”


The opener on J Bengoy’s just-released debut LP Dogwood Winter, “Hands” is another testament to the band’s knack for captivating melodic evolution in their songwriting — evidenced in the past year by “So Good (I Could Die)” and then “Reprise (Marthasville)”. “Hands” begins on a more dramatic note — a touch of piano and retrospective vocals leading to the band’s warm twangs, quickly shifting into rock-friendly territory that – as seen from the Burlington-based act thus far – evolves with captivating melodic allure.

Stream the entirety of Dogwood Winter below, one of the year’s strongest thus far:
