Washington, D.C.-based quintet Bencoolen is a band made of up extraordinary musicians. Part funk, part soul, with a splash of 90’s alternative rock influence (think Red Hot Chili Peppers with a powerful, tasty horn section), the band effortlessly crafts songs that get your body up and moving — and more than likely seeking out a dance partner to get your groove on with. Let’s be real, we can all use some of this. If you’re looking for some inspiration today, these guys have you covered.
Earlier this year, to much fanfare, we saw the band release a perfectly executed, rousing cover of Tom Misch’s “Beautiful Escape.” Today we’re profoundly pleased to premiere their follow up release — the music video for a new, original single, entitled, “Give It Up.“ If this is your first taste of Bencoolen, prepare for your day to be brightened. It’s the perfect introduction.
