Man Benu is a three piece band based out of Brooklyn and the greater New York area. Led by the guitar wizardry and songwriting talent of Bentley Anderson, Man Benu is an evolving sound of harmony and dissonance centered on interwoven guitar lines, lyrical song structures, and drone heavy tonality. Backed by drummer Taylor Davis and guitarist/lap steel player Brady Sansone (Heavy Winged), Man Benu began writing and performing their sprawling pastoral rock songs in late 2008. Referencing the epic sweep of god-like guitar bands such as Come and Sonic Youth, and the electricified folk arrangements of Fairport Convention and Six Organs of Admittance, Man Benu’s debut album The Kindling explores a world of grey dawns and heavy sunsets. Since the release of The Kindling in 2010 the band has released a new single on their bandcamp page entitled Dear Shadow.
