SOUTH SHIELDS SINGERBROOKE BENTHAM ANNOUNCES TYNESIDE HOMECOMING GIG
Saturday 17th June 2017
NEW SINGLE HEAVY AND EPHEMERAL - OUT NOW - LISTEN
Following the release of her sublime new single ‘Heavy And Ephemeral’, Brooke Bentham has announced a special Tyneside homecoming show in this Summer.
Having just embarked on her first proper tour in March supporting the esteemed John Smith at 8 salubrious venues across the UK inc. London’s Union Chapel, Brooke returns to the North East for a headline performance at the Surf Club in Tynemouth on June 17th.
Produced by Ben Baptie (Daughter, Adele, Låpsley), ‘Heavy And Ephemeral’ is a brilliant introduction for those who are meeting Brooke Bentham for the first time. At just 21 years old, Brooke channels a maturity and life ethic that's wise beyond her age, having been born and raised in South Shieldsbefore relocating to New Cross to study at Goldsmiths. Here, 'Heavy And Ephemeral' emerged, impressively completed in conjunction with Brooke jumping into a record deal, EP release and national touring alongside her graduation from University this spring.
‘Heavy And Ephemeral’ is the first track to be taken from Brooke’s forthcoming debut EP, the swells and plummets of which feel as inspired by the epic alt rock journeying of War On Drugs or Ryan Adams as the emotional vocal depths of Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen. Brooke openly admits to writing it at a time of bitterness, as she felt suffocated by a specific relationship. ‘Heavy And Ephemeral’ sees her breaking out; a powerful and emotional anthem, full of light and darkness in equal measure.
Following its premiere on Loud & Quiet, Heavy And Ephemeral’ is available to listen to here: https://soundcloud.com/
