They don’t like to speak concerning the shoulders they’re standing on; they like to current themselves as free brokers with no money owed to their forerunners. Well, none of that nonsense from Benedict Sinister: he makes citing his sources into an artwork. His sensible, horny, sharply-observed songs are a fusion of grownup different and chill home, and so they’re replete with references to singers, writers, poets, and raconteurs. Even his title accommodates a intelligent nod to Nabokov (and The Fall). “Ne Dramatise Pas,” his newest single, name-checks Baudelaire, Karl Lagerfeld, and Serge Gainsbourg in between verses assembled from songs written by former Roxy Music frontman and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bryan Ferry. The “Ne Dramatise Pas” clip we’re sending you in the present day is the one lyric video we’ve ever encountered that features copious footnotes.

She’s not the one stunning lady within the clip, both: there’s additionally a DJ in provocatively quick shorts and a near-naked dancer with mirror-ball glasses and nipple guards. That Benedict Sinister is an appreciator of attractive girls isn’t any secret to anybody who has adopted his profession. However, the pores and skin on show within the “Ne Dramatise Pas” can also be an additional tribute to Ferry, an inveterate romantic who by no means handed up a possibility to place a supermodel on an album cowl or in a video.

He’s left traces of his challenge in Paris, Sydney, Los Angeles, and in lots of much less trendy corners of the globe. Wherever he’s gone, he’s made music, and he’s participated within the artwork of dwelling properly, which is, maybe, his most important contribution to tradition. He’s not a person who likes to tip his hand or go away audiences many breadcrumbs to observe. For now, he asks you to be content material along with his newest stunner of a observe – which should be greater than sufficient.
