We here at the Indy Review are always checking out submissions from new and up-and-coming talent, and it’s a thrill when we find something we dig by brand new talent. This was the case when listening to “California” by alt. pop songwriter BENJII (Benji Klassen). The Vancouver, Canada native hones his various influences (John Mayer, The 1975) into creating multi textured tracks that create a lush atmosphere.
His first single, “California”, carries with it a mysterious mood, brightened by light guitar touches and a breezy chorus that continues the glamorization of the Golden State. There’s an alluring warmth to the track, which could vibe with a day on the beach as well as a night drive down a coastal highway.
