Brooke Bentham at Louisiana in Bristol tonightPosted on: 13 Nov 2017
Brooke Bentham is performing at the Louisiana in Bristol tonight and has also announced her upcoming EP 'This Rapture' will be out on November the 17th.
Her highly acclaimed debut EP ‘The Room Swayed’, saw lead tracks ‘Heavy & Ephemeral’ and ‘I Need Your Body’ gain support from Radio 1, 6Music and Radio X and lead on to Bentham playing several respected festivals - ranging from Green Man and Reading & Leeds to Latitude and Great Escape.
Even though she’s just twenty one, Brooke Bentham's music comes from an old soul because her lyrics are deep, meaningful and relatable for a vast age range of people. She originates from Southshields (just outside Newcastle), and relocated to New Cross to study at Goldsmith's. This is where she formed her live band and Brooke graduated just this summer gone; her debut EP ‘The Room Swayed’ was the backdrop to her final year.
In terms of her new music - her new single ‘Losing, Baby’ describes those negative feelings that follow you around, often out of sight, but are able to strike when least expected. It was directed by Siblings, a filmmaking collective made up of recording artist Grace Lightman and her brother Alex.
She has been very well received so far throughout her tour and the remainder of her dates are:
Mon 13 Nov Louisiana, Bristol
Sat 18 Nov The Mining Institute, Newcastle upon Tyne
Mon 20 Nov The Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham
Sat 25 Nov Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
Sun 26 Nov The Poetry Club, Glasgow
Mon 27 Nov The Musician, Leicester
