Published May 14, 2013Hailing from Saskatoon, SK, Young Benjamins are ready to release their debut full-length Less Argue, but you can listen to it right here before it hits the shelves.
The band match the vocals of UK-born Neusha Mofazzali with a blend of folk, indie rock and good old-fashioned pop influences, though multi-instrumentalist Veronique Poulin takes over singing duty on the album opener "The Colonial Pt. 1."
Less Argue was recorded at Avenue Recording Studios in Saskatoon and mixed in Athens, GA, by John Keane (R.E.M., Widespread Panic). The album has an ode to a famous Canadian mountain town ("Jasper, AB"), a tribute to one of Mofazzali's grandfather's Farsi poems ("Green Eyes") and an abundance of catchy hooks.
The record arrives on May 21 via Dollartone Records, and the indie-folk troupe have a number of Canadian shows coming up this summer, which you can see here. For now, though, give Less Argue a listen below.
