BENEE – “Beach Boy”

Adam Bryce

Back in October, New Zealand alt-pop star Benee released “Doesn’t Matter,” following up her 2020 debut album Hey u x. Now, Benee has announced plans to release a new EP LYCHEE in March, featuring tracks written with Greg Kurstin, Kenny Beats, and Rostam. In addition to the news, she’s sharing a breezy new track from the EP called “Beach Boy,” produced by Kurstin.

“‘Beach Boy’ is pure fantasy, set in LA,” Benee says about the new song. “It’s about being happy alone, but still wanting some love; wanting the thrill without the pain. It was the first time I’d worked with Greg Kurstin, and it was so sick…we got on super well, and I love this track…I think it is perfect for cruising down the freeway with the top down :)”
