Who is Benbo? Well, I didn't know until last week, but it turns out he's a London-based multi-instrumentalist who has been signed to Cooking Vinyl since 2009. And, he's got enough talent to have caught Gordon Raphael's attention (who produced a chunk of The Strokes' material back in the day).
"If You Feel Emotional" stood out to me for its somewhat nostalgic sound, which harkens back to the heyday of alternative rock that was the 1990s. That's not to say it's a complete flashback, though. The song clearly demonstrates a solid grasp of modern music, and in doing so creates something reminiscent yet fresh.
You'll be able to catch this as part of Benbo's debut album It’s A Long Road… And I Need Someone To Hold My Hand, due for release some time in 2016.
