Brooke Bentham They say it's grim up North and one listen of breakthrough singer-songwriter Brooke Bentham's opening salvo in 2017 might reinforce that sentiment. “It's funny how small things can wreck away at your life, when you're not doing anything but living inside,” she sings on the opening track of her debut EP 'The Room Swayed'. The swells and plummets of the track – titled 'Nowhere Near Sense' – possess the epic alt rock journeying of War On Drugs or Ryan Adams with the added emotional vocal depths of Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen. That all this is the fruits of a 21-year-old from South Shields outside of Newcastle might take you by surprise. It carries the weight of someone who's lived a hundred lives already.
