"Bensbeendead may have created your new favorite jam with "Exoskeleton""

In a time where music is coming at us more rapidly than ever, it can be hard to digest new tunes from all of your favorite artists, let alone discover new ones. On the other hand, it makes discovering a new artist all the more special and something like a unearthing a precious gem. A recent example of a new artist discovery is Bensbeendead. The Portland, Maine-based singer/producer is definitely one to watch. If you don't believe me, his new single "Exoskeleton" is all the proof you need.

The Doug Schadt and Bensbeendead co-produced electro-pop track starts off a bit unassuming with a piano loop, but it then picks up with programmed drums and synths. By the time the chorus hits, you are bobbing uncontrollably as the beat really kicks in. Ben's voice creates a quiet storm that, mixed with the production, makes you want to press play over and over. - EARMILK

"Exoskeleton – [Bensbeendead.]"

Bensbeendead. may be a relatively new act but his subject matter and precision both as a singer and producer echoes a self-awareness many acts rarely achieve. The Portland, Maine based artist recently released his latest music video for his single, “Exoskeleton.” Capturing a somber moment alone, Bensbeendead. captivates in his role as the visual’s sole subject matter delivering a performance that feels utterly genuine.

A minimalistic style of visual starring the singer-songwriter places a focus on lyrics and the beautifully orchestrated multi-layered electronic production. The Ant Wheeler directed visual begins simply, capturing Bensbeendead. outside with his essentials; takeout, wine and TV. The image of the multifaceted artist sitting alone sets the tone of the records melancholy theme of inner reflection and transcendence. Bensbeendead. gives us a front row seat into his most intimate moments that we as individuals usually reserve for when we are alone. The willingness to bare all for his listeners highlights a courage not found in every artist, making the discovery of Bensbeendead. even more special. This is one of two official singles out by the Maine based artist who clearly has a firm grasp of his artistry and ability to not only offer heart piercing lyrics but chaotically beautiful production. - Lyrical Lemonade
