Morbid in the Morning saw Benfield change his approach to songwriting, swapping his usual session of solitude for a collaborative approach. Benfield asked his flatmate to play the only four chords he knew over and over until the song sprang to life. From this starting point, Benfield then worked with producer and collaborator Luke Bertoz (Tales in Space, Dappled Cities), who turned this raw piano driven track into something more intricate and luscious.
Benfield says of the track “I was trying to capture the conflict between the face we show to the world, and what we actually feel. The tug of war between the very real feeling of living with a deep sense of sadness, and the need to appear happy and together. It’s the struggle between authenticity and civility”.
Morbid in the Morning is the third track to be released from Benfield’s upcoming debut EP, and is another fine offering from this intriguing young Sydney artist.
