“"Went from performing comedy as music to performing music as comedy:” - Jomaha Nebraska
The Benefits are Back Baby!!!!
The (Full) Benefits are a Winnipeg-based art rock collective who culminate their musical efforts into droned-up tones, melodic hooks and unforgettable choruses. Their lyrics and gazes are never solely focused on footwear, but rather on everyday mundane moments, the absurdity of normality and of course, the latest in trendy footwear.
Live shows have been described as “whoa” and “oh ya, right on”, with onlookers consistently left in awe of how music can still be fun, interactive and aimlessly amazing.
Their first single “Too Bad You’re A Vegetarian” is a lesson in patience, persistence and ultimately acceptance. It has been hailed by critics as “pretty good, all things considered”.
Their upcoming EP will demonstrate the collective’s ability to branch out from their podium atop the music-comedy scene of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, into other avenues of mediocrity alongside other non-funny musical acts charting across the country and around the globe.
