Canada is a federal country, a place where differences are are expected, anticipated and used to form something bigger than any one part.
Young Benjamins share Canadian, Franco-Phile, UK and Persian origins, yet somehow manage to fuse this into something distinct.
New single 'Beware Of Me' is rousing indie rock with some country inflections, although it's wide open melody certainly has a slightly Middle Eastern gait.
"There is courage involved in allowing someone into your life, in the acceptance of one's own vulnerability in relationships. That combined with past failures, fears and shortcomings are the subject of 'Beware Of Me'" says singer Neusha Mofazzali. "Finding success in your failures and embracing the growth inherent in those, allowing others in, is the message."
