HAILING from Newcastle, Brooke Bentham has made waves with her warm-hearted, folky music and emotionally charged lyrics.

Following the release of her debut EP The Room Swayed earlier this year, the young singer-songwriter is already preparing to unveil her next collection of songs at the end of this month under the name This Rapture; of which latest track ‘Have To Be Around You’ is the latest instalment.

Reminiscent of Angel Olsen in her heartfelt lyricism and the way she can produce a powerful set of notes so suddenly and effortlessly, the track opens softly before building to a cathartic crescendo with energising synths and hard-hitting percussion.

The new track, which you can check out below, arrives ahead of a string of live dates which will take her to a number of venues around the UK including the Poetry Club in Glasgow on 26th November.
