It was mid 2014 when Indie/Folk/Pop musician Banff (Benjamin Forbes) made the decision to walk away from his then current band, determined to explore his thirst for songwriting and creativity under a new project. This decision may have been the best of his life, with the young Brisbane writer soon finding himself featured on Triple J Unearthed, with over 140,000 soundcloud plays on his debut single “Stand in Line”. His beautiful fusion of synth pop and folk, along with the gentle crooning of his voice and a certain reflective nostalgia, has resulted in a style that is truly addictive. Catch Banff at the Blackbear Lodge for the launch of his Future Self EP on August 21st!
