Newcastle’s Ben Leece give us ‘Villains’

Fragile yet confronting and always honest, Ben will make you run the gamut of emotion.

Newcastle singer-songwriter Ben Leece has released his brand new single ‘Villains’ and we think you’re gonna love it.

‘Villains’ is the first track to surface from Ben’s recent recording sessions with Australian music stalwart Shane Nicholson, and draws upon a real experience of returning to the home of his youth in North West NSW.

Ben discusses the romance of nostalgia pitted against realities of the present, and the feeling of coming up short when comparing career and life accomplishments of childhood friends to that of his own. Sonically ‘Villains’ references modern Americana and was recorded in Nicholson’s Sound Hole Studio on the Central Coast featuring musical performances from Shane, Pete Drummond, Katie Brianna and the unmistakable steel of Jason Walker.

Villains is available digitally via all streaming platforms.
