Benjamin Witt’s Dead Fish has some serious circle-of-life vibes
The former The Chemist frontman is bringing some different vibes in solo form.
Benjamin Witt is one clever fellow. In his first single off his upcoming solo album Future Reset, former frontman of The Chemist Witt marries the forces of art and spirituality to produce an endearing folkloric track about mankind’s humble beginnings, and journey to the very end. Inspired by the Gutai Manifesto; how the science of culture and spirit inspires story-telling, Witt drives West African guitars and drums to help transport us to the existential tale Witt is trying to tell. Singing a very simple and catchy melody with Katy Steele, Witt is channeling a tribal sound that would make all of us dance around an open camp fire or even our living rooms after those midnight D&M’s.
Check out Witt’s upcoming solo shows below, where he's joining our own Koi Child on their current album tour, along with The Drones on their's later in the year.
