Garnering over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify and receiving critical praise across the globe,19-year-old indie pop sensation BENEE’s STELLA & STEVE EP has arrived!
The five-track EP includes the irresistible pop bop “Supalonely” feat. Gus Dapperton, as well as BENEE’s recently-released viral hits “Find an Island” and “Monsta” and new songs “Drifting” feat. Jack Berry and “Blu.”
On the inspiration behind the EP title, BENEE cheekily says, “I am Stella and my car is called Steve.”
She continues on her “Supalonely” collaboration with Gus Dapperton, saying, “This one is a super self-deprecating song where I just take the piss out of myself being sad haaaa! Then BOOM, Gus Dapperton drops a twist at the end with his funky lil verse.” Gus chimes in, saying, “I loved the beat and BENEE’s vocals! The concept was highly relatable to me on the other side of the spectrum, as being someone who likes to go out more often than not. It was natural and awfully fun to write to <3.”
BENEE had the world talking on the eve of STELLA & STEVE, with recent praise from various tastemakers, including Billboard, Pigeons & Planes, Refinery29, NYLON, Marie Claire, E! News, Idolator, Ones To Watch, Indie Shuffle and more, further establishing her an artist to watch for 2020. Earlier this week, BENEE took home four wins at the 2019 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards, including “Best Solo Artist,” “Breakthrough Artist of the Year,” “Best Pop Artist,” and “Single Of The Year” for her breakout hit “Soaked.” She also joined ROLE MODEL on his latest track “notice me.”
