Benefits are a band from a forgotten corner of the north east of England who play noisy songs about the dismal state of the country they live in.
Forming in 2019 and consisting of Kingsley Hall on vocals, Robbie Major and Hugh Major on synths and noise, and Cat Myers on drums they quickly evolved from a fairly standard IDLES-lite shouty punk rock outfit to a highly politicised group that merges noise, hip hop, industrial rock, electronica, garage and an angry twitter feed to get it’s point across.
A completely DIY outfit, (no management, no label, no PR) and despite having zero radio play (due to the nature of their lyrics), through their releases in 2021 they managed to gain fans as diverse as Sleaford Mods, Black Francis, Garbage and Elijah Wood as well as getting significant features in the NME and the Quietus.
