Bye Beneco is a trine of multi-talented artists and musicians from the city of Johannesburg, South Africa, fronted by enchantress Lenny-Dee Doucha. The band’s new hometown to take the festival scene by storm is Berlin.
Welcome to the ever-shifting electric charge that is Bye Beneco. You’re looking through a sparkling kaleidoscope of dreamy indie-pop, laced with cosmic-disco and neon psychedelic sounds, flickering like the glittery eyeshadow you wore to the party. The band’s live performances are visually lustrous and alluring, wrapping themselves around you like a threesome with Barbarella and Ziggy Stardust.
Having had three consecutive European tours since 2016, the band have seen immense success playing renowned international festivals, namely, twice at Barcelona’s leading arts festival Primavera Sound. The trio will soon relocate to Berlin to weave their spell around Europe’s hippest capital.
In 2019 – 2020, Bye Beneco released five new singles with music videos, evolving further into dancefloor-ready disco and synth-pop as a neon-lit window into the future. Bye Beneco’s strong videos have earned international recognition, as did their releases Ghetto Disko (2017 EP) and debut LP Space Elephant (2014), which was nominated for a South African Music Award for Best Alternative Album.
