Watch Brooke Bentham’s Dirty Dancing reshoot – where Baby’s dream moment turns into a total nightmare

New music from the South Shields songwriter

Back in February of this year Brooke Bentham shared one of her first tracks, ‘Heavy and Ephemeral’.

At that point, the 21-year-old songwriter from Southshields was wrapping up her studies at London’s Goldsmiths university, preparing to go on a UK tour and hatching plans for her debut EP (‘The Room Swayed’).

Now, these months down the line, there’s a second EP on the way, ‘This Rapture’. No release date for that yet, but she has just shared this new track ‘Losing, Baby’ along with a new video.

The clip, by filmmaking collective Siblings, is described as “the alternative ending to Dirty Dancing – Baby was put in a corner and now she’s back to drag everyone into her grotesque nightmare.”

She’s playing some shows soon, in these places.
