We have been fangirling so hard on the beautifully weaved sounds of South African trio Bye Beneco.
By KEVIN KAT
I met a beautiful woman on 7th street Melville earlier this year, and while transfixed with her presence I was not surprised to find out that she was an artist. Bye Beneco is an eclectic dream-pop trio from South Africa, taking inspiration mostly from one of the greatest African machines, the city of Johannesburg.
It has been long since I discovered music that so utterly took over the imagination and transports one through interesting and beautiful, “ever-evolving” soundscapes. Their sound stems from various styles and they refer to their opus as somewhat of a “musical ADD”. Their live shows and music videos are as much visual as they are musical journeys.
As independent artists, they are braving the difficult landscape that is the music industry. Have a listen to some of the tracks in the videos below, and if you love it as much as we do, follow the link below to presave/pre-add their new release It’s Not True Love on Spotify and Apple Music.
