Former Peggy Sue bassist Benedict Benjamin shares melodic new single "The Way You Talk To Waiters".
Of his new single, he says, "This one is a song about my lady. She’s kind and smart and pretty and I love her. That’s about it on that."
The new release lands with an animated video by Katy Beveridge. She explains, "In terms of process - it’s all hand painted or drawn using a variety of mediums; acrylic, charcoal, crayon, pencil etc. The collaged elements are all cut out individually and photographed back in. Like most traditional ‘cel’ animation it’s 12 frames per second - so the whole process generated a few thousand paintings and drawings. I wanted it to feel more like a moving canvas, like a memory, in the way that the song captures the idea of the person rather than a linear narrative."
Truant was recorded, mixed, and engineered by Night Songs producer Dan Blackett, between Blackett's flat and London's Soup Studios.
