Stop Being Ridiculous

BENEE hits us with the best kind of theatrical irony in “Marry Myself” — their new single off the album Lychee.

We all know where a track like “Marry Myself” goes — it’s a self-indulgent pop fantasy all about empowerment — but I did not expect it to hit so hard. It’s a truly unique sound in the space of alt-pop. It’s a driving nightlight track that feels at home on the road in the middle of the night, but it’s a 100 times better when you are by yourself.

A driving breakbeat and the ever pure vocal performance from BENEE not only makes “Marry Myself” a joy to listen to, but the actual content of the lyrics boosts it even further.

It’s a goody, truly.

BENEE performs a track so on the nose you can’t help but smile through the soft pop sounds of “Beach Boy.”

I associate a lot of things with the dream-pop soundscape: clouds, beaches, naps, and midday sunshine, but it’s not every day when a track comes around that injects a sense of quirk to it.

“Beach Boy” shows itself at face value as a dream-pop ballad that flows in and out of synth sounds and pop beats, but then also very intelligently layers that with a quirky on the nose narrative that is not only well-designed but also just the most fun thing you’ll listen to all day.

I’m Sorry for This (The Coffee was Great Thou)

So you know what’s strange? The stay-around breakup, also known as the let’s be friends break up. What isn’t strange is this bop.

It’s a weird dynamic when someone is in a position of needing to break up with someone else, not because they don’t like them, but because they just know a friendship is better, small hurt before a big hurt.

What is so fascinating about the composition of this song is it encapsulates the happy/sad feeling of these breakups so so well. It takes what is essentially a heartbreaking moment and hides it behind smiles, vibes, and a bop that doesn’t in any way make you feel bad, and then when you finally realize the actual intention, it cuts out, leaving you with that and nothing else.

It’s not every day a high-energy song takes a deeply emotional situation and creates a well-constructed and sonically pleasing sound.

Please don’t go, I wanna stay friends.
