David Bennett is a songwriter taking a quirky spin on his music away from the usual pop-fodder and embracing the peculiar and idiosyncratic in his music. Influences like Regina Spektor, Billy Bragg, and Ben Folds are pretty telling of what’s in store.
The video for Atoms released earlier in the year not only documents how every instrument is played and contributes to the song in totality but uses a quirky sounding tune to dig deeper into the meaning of being a person. Those lyrics hit home pretty quickly as someone who has issues with passport photo resemblance.
More recently, Meet the New Year continues on this quirky-deep approach – on the surface, a light-hearted whimsical pop tune, but underneath a more thoughtful consideration to expendability, purpose and morality.
