Marking 2021 in style, Australia’s Benedict has returned in collaboration with Lee Groves to produce a glorious remix of her original single ‘Warzone’. Glowing synth work and driving percussion sit neatly with wide pad soundscapes creating a remix that flips from slick choruses to astute breakdowns.
Speaking of the meaning behind the track, Benedict revealed:
“The last year has been a warzone for many with COVID-19, massive world political issues, relationships and many other things. ‘Warzone’ is about all these challenges. All different experiences we have with people, life, religion, politics and many other things. I felt this was captured in the captivating remix that Lee created. It has been one of the most exciting parts of last year connecting, through the amazing Dean Tuza and having the privilege of working with the brilliant Mr Lee Groves. Honoured that he said yes to doing my remix and now mixing my upcoming single as well! The remix is a true piece of art. It weaves in and out creating a web of colour and movement. It takes me on a journey to another world. Light and dark experiences leaving you wanting more. So many layers I feel very blessed to be working with such a genius.”
Cutting edge with bursts of nostalgia, Benedict’s voice showcases a triumphant versatility that makes her the perfect modern artist. We can’t wait to see what the rest of 2021 holds for Benedict and her brand of avant-garde pop.
