New Release: Brooke Bentham – Have To Be Around You

Brooke Bentham has unveiled new track Have To Be Around You. This joins the recently-released single Losing, Baby on Brooke’s forthcoming EP, This Rapture

Take a listen to Have To Be Around You below…

Aged just twenty one, Brooke Bentham’s music nonetheless carries the weight of someone who’s lived a hundred lives already. She was born and raised – in large, part, fending for herself with three older brothers – in Southshields (just outside Newcastle), before relocating to New Cross to study at Goldsmith’s. Here she at last felt part of a wider arts community, forming her live band and finding a mutual sense of camaraderie among a new generation of South London creatives. Brooke graduated only this summer, with debut EP The Room Swayed – an at times-brutally honest dissection of those static, unfulfilling relationships – forming the backdrop to her final year.

Now focused on the harsh realities facing any young graduate – or in this case, the daunting job of writing a debut album – Brooke Bentham’s early songs already point to a bright future
