Benin City X Black Polygons – ‘Stay Positive’ Review

We never make much secret of our love of Benin City, and while we wait for them to finish up on their album they’ve been nice enough to make public a short collaborative demo to keep everyone interested.

‘Stay Positive’ is a short demo (under two minutes long) that is a collaboration with “one of [their] new fave bands” Black Polygons, who provide the instrumentation. And it works very well, in a style very typical of Benin City – the synth line rings with a melancholic chill, while the verse is all about finding the gleam of hope and positivity in the humdrum of life.

It’s not something that will add a whole new layer of depth or sound to what we expect from the band, but it’s not meant to. It’s a free download and a tasty appetite-whetting treat for us to happily consume until the album drops.
