New Zealand alternative pop artist BENEE has announced a set of North American headlining tour dates for September and October.
These live shows come on the heels of BENEE’s recent headline world tour, which took her to sold-out venues across North America, Europe, and the United Kingdom earlier this spring and summer. She also performed at the Governor’s Ball Music Festival and the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival over the summer. Her most recent extended play, titled Lychee, was released earlier this spring to tremendous praise from music critics.
With the songs “Doesn’t Matter” and “Beach Boy,” the musician prepared the groundwork for their extended play. She collaborated with musicians from both the American and Asian sides of the Pacific Ocean to bring the Lychee EP to reality. She found herself writing music with Greg Kurstin, Kenny Beats, and Rostam when she was living in California. She continued her work with her usual collaborator Josh Fountain after moving back to her native New Zealand.
The result was the completion of further songs. Lychee, as a whole, demonstrates her development into an articulate and artistic voice for Generation Z. She pushes limits while being courageous enough to not compromise her originality or passion. See the announcement below.
