After humble lo-fi beginnings in the Australian art-pop underground, Donny Benet has expanded his cult-like following across the globe with a resonant array of danceable repertoire dealing with love and affection.
New album Mr Experience marks a new chapter, informed by a wealth of musical and personal development.
For Mr Experience, Donny envisioned a soundtrack to a dinner party set in the late 1980s. While his earlier recordings drew inspiration from DIY pop conspirators such as Ariel Pink and John Maus, Donny channelled the stylings of Bryan Ferry and Hiroshi Yoshimura as the impetus for new material, evident on the intimacy found on ‘Girl Of My Dreams’ and its lush production (with a soothing whistle-along chorus for good measure).
Sincerity has been a key component of Donny Ben t’s output since the beginning. His songs deal with genuine emotion served on a kitsch platter. An alterego manifested in the beginning of the 2010s, Donny has blurred the lines of artifice to create a back catalogue that can embrace and challenge - often simultaneously - the notion of irony in art.
