Alec Benjamin Returns With New Single Jesus In LA

Wednesday, 17 July 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Alec Benjamin has shared a new song.

Jesus In LA arrives with a companion video directed by Joey Brodnax and is described by Benjamin as a track for, "anyone who has ever felt lonely or lost." It chornicles his highs and lows in the city of Los Angeles after moving to California and leaving his friends and family in pursuit of his dreams. He continued:

"When I first got to LA I thought that I was going to finally find the happiness that I had always been looking for. Not long after I arrived, I signed my first record deal. Got dropped. Lost friends. Spent all my money… and had to move back in with my parents.

"It was then that I realised the thing that I was looking for most was in front of me the whole time. My true friends and family. Even at my lowest point, being back home with my family is what made me truly happy. The song isn't a literal take on religion or about Jesus at all. It's about searching for hope and happiness and realizing those things aren’t always where you think you’ll find them."

The song serves as the first new material from the 25-year-old since the release of his 2018 album, 'Narrated For You'.

Earlier this year, Benjamin announced he will bring his Caught In The Middle Tour to the UK and Europe this autumn. Tickets for his shows in London and Dublin are on sale.

Bleached’s return is powered by a desire for change. ‘Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough?’ is the first album that the sisters Clavin, Jennifer and Jessica, have recorded since deciding to get sober, and it’s also a bold attempt to fashion their winningly bratty brand of garage-rock into more expressive, sophisticated shapes.

Exposure to early 2000s emo, nu-metal and pop-punk usually results in one of two reactions: a disgusted sneer, often accompanied by an exasperated sigh, or a knowing smile followed by overly enthusiastic headbanging. Dude York’s members would choose the latter.
