Emerging from the coastal mountains and lush rainforests of Vancouver Canada, alternative-pop artist BENJII breaks onto the scene for the first time with a refreshingly cool take on pop. Combining an enigmatic ability to see color in sound alongside a dark taste for texture and melody, the result becomes a sonic panorama of moody electronics, sparkling guitars, atmospheric synths and an airy, alluring vocal.

While the sound of his first single – California – dawns a neon silhouette of feel-good West Coast vibes, BENJII explores contrasting lyrical themes of escape, and the search for meaning. With sky high choruses, verses drenched in vocal processing, and some tastefully articulate guitar work peppered in-between, California aims to show listeners that BENJII isn’t a new artist to be taken lightly.
