BYE BENECO
BYE BENECO

Bye Beneco are bringing their eclectic dream-pop to #RTDxCAND. Their sound stems from various styles with the intention to forever evolve. The band refers to their opus as somewhat of a “musical ADD” with Johannesburg being their biggest influence. Their golden thread is lead singer, Lenny-Dee’s evocative and original writing style. Bye Beneco’s live shows are as much a visual journey as they are musical. Be sure not to sleep on this one.
