Inspired by an overheard conversation at a coffee shop in Queens, “Black Currant” addresses themes of longing, mystery, and hopelessness. It begins with a hazy, detuned synth then opens up into a deeply grooving, dark indie-electro jam. Benoit’s powerful vocals, the sleek bass line, and an unexpected second-half breakbeat propel the song forward through its 3½ minute runtime.

Benoit’s musical project began in the summer of 2014 with his live debut as Artist of the Month at The Bitter End Singer-Songwriter Series (NYC). He released his debut album, College, on June 16th, 2017. Soon afterwards, he successfully funded the release of his second LP, Heartrender, on Indiegogo, played a packed album release show at PIANOS NYC on January 27th, and received positive press coverage from a variety of independent publications.

Benoit will be releasing “Black Currant” as the title track of a six-song EP, also out on May 25th.

“Black Currant” was written, produced, mixed, and mastered by Eric Benoit. Additional recordings engineered by Eric Benoit and Conrad Capalbo. Artwork by Mr. Frank.
