BENEE is a 19-year-old singer-songwriter from Auckland, New Zealand. Not too long ago, she released a lovely alternative-pop tune, entitled, “Evil Spider”, from her upcoming debut EP.

BENEE – “Evil Spider” single

“‘Evil Spider’ is about wanting someone that’s already taken. When writing the song, I didn’t wanna make the lyrics too obviously evil. So I thought I’d turn myself into the spider, making it a lil lighter and making the song revolve around me weaving webs to lure the person, catch ‘em like a spider then reel them in. I remember humming ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ in the studio, which inspired the playful vibe of the song.” – BENEE

‘Evil Spider’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and vibey instrumentation flavored with an indie-alternative aroma.

“With the media and societal expectations, there is this kind of image that people want to see. For me, I never want to be something that I’m not or something that I don’t want to be. I want the whole Bene project to be my artistic truth. I want to be a powerful, strong woman who people can look up to. Also, I want to be honest, and I want to be myself.” – BENEE

BENEE has emerged as New Zealand’s artist to watch with her breakout single, entitled, “Soaked”.

The likable tune has climbed Spotify’s Viral Charts, accumulating over 17M streams. Also, it achieved Gold Certification in New Zealand and Australia.

Not too long ago, BENEE went from playing her first small club gig to her first arena show—opening for longtime role model Lily Allen—in a matter of months.
