Ethereal layers of spacious, soul-drenched indie-pop – that is the craft of singer-songwriter BANFF. Benjamin Forbes, the erstwhile frontman of Brisbane group LITTLE CASINO, has stepped away from the band environment with a thirst to explore new songwriting ground, something he has achieved in spades with his first single, Stand In Line. Late last year, Forbes packed his bags and flew south to collaborate with Tom Scary (Big Scary / #1 Dad’s Tom Iansek) at Big Scary’s Mixed Business studio in Melbourne. The sessions delivered a delicate and dutifully honest collection of tracks, most notably debut single Stand In Line – a real headphone record that showcases Forbes’ emotive vocals backed by hypnotic drums and sparse staccato piano lines. Recorded, mixed and produced by Iansek, Stand In Line sets the tone for what’s to come from BANFF’s debut EP, Future Self (to be released early 2015 via We Are Golden). A confident but delicate mix of tracks, “Future Self” is sure to reveal BANFF as a rising new talent and one to watch in 2015.
