Mysterious masked musician Benedict Sinister has returned with a new extended club mix of his track Going Away which has already reached the top ten of the Music Week Club Charts in the UK. Benedict has been gathering fans around the globe lately for his weird outrageous antics and the new video is certain to raise some eyebrows.
The video takes on a video game-style aesthetic set in space with spaceships, golden sexy aliens, and a dancing robot. It’s a fun and eye-catching visual for a pop-EDM track laced with Benedict’s acerbic attitude and matter of fact spoken word vocal.
In fact, the new track may be the best example yet of Sinister’s extraordinary combination of house lounge music with adult alternative vocal style and subject matter: break-ups and the great art they have inspired, from Verlaine to Hemingway to Gainsbourg, Jimmy Webb, Jeff Buckley, and Lana Del Rey – who are all quoted in the song.
