On June 15th, genre-bending indie artists, Dreamer Boy and BENEE packed the TLA to capacity in anticipation of the incredible show that Dreamer Boy and Benee were about to perform. This show marked one of many cross-country stops on their North American tour.
The music of Dreamer Boy is best described as an immersive and transporting experience. His hazy synth-filled sound has earned him critical acclaim, some calling it “subtly beautiful.” With two widely praised albums on his roster, Dreamer Boy quickly landed on the radar of indie genre fans. Live, Dreamer Boy‘s set was like a high-energy-filled, annotated dance party. Feeding off the excited cheers of the crowd, he powered through fan-favorite tracks such as “Over Everything,” “Jumpshot,” and “Keep The Pace.”
Following Dreamer Boy was headliner BENEE. This New Zealand singer caught the eyes and ears of indie pop fans everywhere with her angelic voice and captivating stage presence since she first began releasing her music in 2018. Fast forward to now, and BENEE has dropped her debut album, titled, hey u x, and developed a loyal fanbase both in NZ and across the U.S.
Live, BENEE‘s stage presence was unmatched. Her incredible voice and charismatic personality kept fans entertained throughout her performance, and the crowd loved every minute of her set. Fans sang along as BENEE performed beloved singles such as “Supalonely” and “Doesn’t Matter.” In between songs, she took the time to interact with her fans, cracked jokes, and even proclaimed how impressed she was with a sweet, handmade hat gift from one of her fans in the front row.
All in all, both artists put on a fantastic show. BENEE‘s voice is incredible, and Dreamer Boy‘s dancing was top-notch. If you haven’t listened to either of these artists yet, now is the time to start!
