Benjamin Forbes is a new name on the Australian music scene, but if his first single is anything to go by, he's one you'll be hearing a lot more about soon. Operating under the moniker Banff, the Brisbane-based musician recently finished recording his debut EP with Tom Iansek (of Big Scary and #1 Dads fame).
Iansek has begun building a reputation for himself for spotting talent early, and he looks to have hit another winner with Banff. "Stand In Line" is a track of significant allure, with Forbes' stirring vocals being joined by a soundscape of well-balanced delicacy. He's used the track's build to perfection here, growing from its gentle opening into the triumphant climax, reminiscent of bands like Beirut.
Banff’s debut EP Future Self will be released in early 2015 -- really early 2015, hopefully.
