BENEE is a rising singer-songwriter from Auckland, New Zealand. Not too long ago, she released a groovy alternative tune, entitled, “Monsta”.
BENEE – “Monsta” single
“Thought I’d give you a spooky lil song for Halloween. I wrote it about a real fear I have of being taken in the night by someone outside my room. Also, I’ve been loving a bunch of Arabic music lately. And, in the studio when we were working on “Monsta”, I suggested we find a line that follows a similar double harmonic scale—which you don’t usually hear in western music. I love the way that part has come out in the song.” – BENEE
‘Monsta’ contains a dreamy storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses groovy instrumentation scented with an alternative-pop aroma.
‘Monsta’ arrives on the heels of BENEE’s “Find an Island” single. In a little under a month, the tune has turned into a viral moment with upwards of 2 million Spotify streams.
