NYC Singer-songwriter and instrumentalist Rob Benny released their latest resonantly raw single “Speak” on May 13th. Anyone who appreciates soundscapes which ooze nostalgic appeal whilst simultaneously leaving you excited over finding fresh new talent won’t want to hang around hitting play.
It’s simple, it’s understated, yet, at the same time, it’s emotionally striking to the point where it feels like you’re battling with the melodies while they’re attempting to ensure that you don’t get to the outro dry-eyed.
With a similar lyrical style to Waits, Cohen and Elliott Smith, there’s a candid honesty to Speak. Hearing Rob Benny open up his soul leaves you feeling compelled to follow suit.
You can check out Speak for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
