Bubblebrain’s Hot Picks #3 Benny the Moth

Benny the Moth’s signature alt-rock/reggae plays around a line of critical balance with melodic flourishes complementing the rhythmic foundations, aiming to satisfy mind and body. Particularly impressive is the way that Dozy and James swap roles on drums and bass while keeping the band’s groovy objective locked-on. Tom’s David Torn-soundalike guitar textures add unexpected colours to the palette. Lionel is a front man with genuine charisma. Emphatically, we love these guys and thank them for their continuing contributions to the Jersey scene. Benny the Moth represents the island’s musical heart and soul, being a band of socially conscious, spiritually informed deliverers of good times.
