From Athens in Greece we find the indie-pop outfit The Bennetts comprising Fotis (Vocals / Guitar), Thanasis (Guitar), Don Mondie (Bass) and Akis (Drums).
Perfect Friday morning fayre, The Bennetts produce music with no frippery that gets right to the heart of the matter, garage driven indie-pop with slight guitar distortion which matches the idiosyncratic vocal and the whole sound catches the listener slightly off guard.
These guys are masters at raising an enormous question mark the moment you hit play as they continually play slightly off key, which were it not for the fact that they can carry off so well you are initially tempted to write it off as a band needing to practice more. Don’t let that initial thought sully your continued listening. It is this quirky tongue in cheek approach that actually is the key attraction to The Bennetts.
As necessary and appropriate to the mood of the song, they slide majestically into the natural melodies and the whole discordance of it all takes on an immeasurable glow of good humour
About a year old now The Bennetts have just released their debut seven track LP Dreamkeepers, on the USA indie label Jigsaw Records who are developing a name for themselves in the quirky world of indie-pop, to follow up their earlier single .
