Brooke Bentham has just released ‘I Need Your Body’, the second single from her debut EP which is due to drop this summer. Once again, it showcases her rich, haunting vocals, with an intimate backdrop of soft indie guitars and delicate electronics. This follows the acclaimed release of ‘Heavy & Ephemeral’, which was a more upbeat number which caught the eyes and ears of Radio 1, 6Music etc. ‘I Need You Body’, on the other hand, feels much more melancholic, dealing with the dizzying trauma of moving into a new but ultimately dysfunctional relationship: “I think I need you to make my body work”. Brooke Bentham will have her work cut out for her, as her music sits in a field of immaculate pop dominated by the likes of Lorde, Banks and Tei Shi. With producer Ben Baptie on her side, however, whose creds include Daughter, Adele and Lapsley, ‘I Need Your Body’s rich, high-end production helps her stand out from the crowd. Watch out for The Room Swayed, which is due to drop on June 9th-HM
