Gideon Bensen is one of those people who can't stop making music. Bensen, who is the guitarist for Sydney band The Preatures, has emerged with a solo project that very much intends to grasp the spotlight.
With his debut single, 'All New Low', Bensen makes a clear musical break from The Preatures and releases a track that is a schism between rock and electronica. Add in some commanding frontman persona and you have a very promising debut single.
Bensen has also called on some of his friends for the song. Megan Washington features on backing vocals and Carlos Adura from The Tambourine Girls fills in on drums, plus Preatures bandmate Jack Moffit is on guitar.
The video is our favourite aspect of the track. The glitchy, trippy effects and dance shadows match the song perfectly and clearly separate Bensen from the pack as a distinctive and imaginative artist.
'All New Low' is the lead single of Bensen's upcoming EP, which is to be released in February. We can't wait to hear it.
