Brooke Bentham Shares new single ‘I Need Your Body’
London-based singer/songwriter Brooke Bentham has shared her new single I Need Your Body, the second to be taken from her debut EP entitled The Room Swayed. This follows the success of acclaimed return track Heavy & Ephemeral, which picked up support across Radio 1, 6Music and Radio X.

I Need Your Body is a beautiful slice of indie tune with a melancholic mix of lust and resentment, produced again by Ben Baptie (Daughter, Adele, Lapsley) and pushing Brooke's stunning voice further than ever before. I adore her vocals here. So smooth and packed with tons of emotion. Brooke's debut EP, The Room Swayed, is themed around those static, unfulfilling moments in a relationships new and old, and the realisation of how to break out of it (in part through writing songs).

Aged just twenty one, Brooke Bentham's music nonetheless carries the weight of someone who's lived a hundred lives already. She was born and raised in Southshields (just outside Newcastle) before relocating to New Cross to study at Goldsmith's (where she is in the final stages of her degree). Already, her songwriting swells and plummets in ways which feel as inspired by the epic  alt  rock  journeying of War On Drugs or Ryan Adams as the emotional vocal depths of Sharon  Van  Etten  or  Angel  Olsen: all shot through with remarkably personal, direct lyricism which suggests a maturity and life ethic that's wise beyond her years. 'The Room Swayed' may have been written in an admittedly challenging period, but the results suggest Brooke Bentham is now looking firmly towards a bright future.
