The Bennetts - Dreamkeeper (Jigsaw)

Bennetts Dreamkeeper Jigsaw
31 January 2014

What is that accent? Northern English, Scottish, Welsh or Irish? Actually, it’s Greek. Dreamkeeper is the debut release from The Bennetts, an Athens-based band who cheerfully put their own spin on indie-pop.

Through seven finely crafted songs, we’re taken on a journey through upbeat, catchy melodies. The guitars have a slight shoegaze element to them, adding a dreamy quality that mixes well with the punchy character that dominates most of the tracks. Clear production allows the instrumentation to take a step forward and express the bliss exuding from the tunes. It’s a pleasant release, perfect for a day in the park with the family.

As first offerings go, this one is mighty impressive. Let’s see what happens next.
