Listening Post

We think that Brooke Bentham might be the Angel (Olsen) of the North (Shields)

Listen to the 21-year-old's new song 'Heavy and Ephemeral'

Brooke Bentham must be a disciplined sort.

Right now the 21-year-old is in her final term of university at Goldsmith’s in London. She’s been juggling her studies with an ever growing spotlight on her music the last year or so.

Now, Bentham, who grew up in North Shields (just outside Newcastle), has a new track ready to go and a summer diary full of plans, including the release of her debut EP. She says this new one is “a bitter song about mild lust.”

It’s called ‘Heavy and Ephemeral’ and you can listen to it below.

In the spring, she’s going on tour with John Smith.
