New Zealand indie-pop superstar BENEE recently released her latest EP, Lychee. It’s the follow-up to her 2020 debut album Hey u x, which exploded around the world on the back of the hit single 'Supalonely'. BENEE, though, had to watch all that unfold from Auckland due to COVID restrictions.
That finally changed late in 2021 when she travelled to the US to work with songwriters and producers like Greg Kurstin and Rostam. Alongside collaborations with her longtime producer Josh Fountain, her work with Greg and Rostam features on her new EP, which we talk about in this interview. We also talk about BENEE's upbringing and path into music, her earliest musical experiences, meeting Elton John, and much more.
