Channeling irresistibly nostalgic 80s dance-pop into a thriving electronic track, Scratch Massive have remixed Australian alt-pop prodigy Benedict’s single ‘Warzone’. Her hypnotising voice, agile and distinctive, soars alongside swirling synths and kinetic beats. The dark, electric and refined production offers the perfect complement to Benedict’s authentic lyricism, resulting in a deeply magnetic track.
Speaking of the inspiration behind the track, Benedict revealed: “My single ‘Warzone’ is about many different relationships we have over time. Relationships with partners, friendships, family, government, religion. Learning the paradigms of these things and how they can change very quickly from positive to negative. Trusting and loving when you only receive narcissism and gaslighting in return. Some relationships are warzones that can break us down mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is about the loneliness and pain that you take on then healing from past hurts and breathing your truth. As each human is unique and special it is about stepping out and trusting your heart and your goodness and fighting for your life. To me the most important thing is to become stronger and be your true self no matter what the consequences and live in your full truth as well as love others for their differences and unique selves.”
Benedict is a multi-talented singer, songwriter and musician who hails from Melbourne. Coming from a musical family, she has been invested in her craft from an early age. Despite drawing comparisons to Kate Bush, Benedict has created a refreshingly original sound. She made her debut in 2019 with the single ‘Oh Fool’, which made the Top 10 releases of the year on notable online music publication TONEDEAF. Her second single Warzone was produced by Dean Tuza, and is now followed by the pulsating Scratch Massive remixes. We can’t wait to hear more.
