After a premiere on Vents Magazine earlier this week, we’re pumped to be sharing “Give It Up”, a brand-new video from Bencoolen. “Give It Up” follows the release of “Beautiful Escape” earlier this year, and like its predecessor, the clip was shot in-studio. Beginning with black-and-white shots, it transitions to full color as the band get in to their groove.
And Bencoolen is a band that knows how to groove. The Washington, DC quintet has a distinctive funk/soul meets rock sound, with each member adding their own unique element to the sound. Drums, guitar, bass, and saxophone interlock, calling and responding to each other and generating sparks. That spark is alive and well onstage, and anyone in the DC scene knows that a Bencoolen show is a can’t-miss event.
