Song premiere: "Spice" by Bencoolen

2 May 2016

With a page on their site dedicated to Greek Life Booking and a list of cover songs pulled from the repertoire of Dave Matthews Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Sublime, it’s pretty clear the members of Bencoolen aren’t interested in gaining indie cred. No, these fine young fellows, who describe their sound as “maximalist rock”, are here to party, bruh!

We jest. Fact is, we at The Big Takeover have never been concerned with what’s cool and hip; the music is all that matters, and this here song, the first single from the band’s upcoming six-song debut, In Color, is nothing less than a solidly crafted, thoroughly enjoyable rock ballad. Have a listen, won’t you?
