Benbrick wrote Sakura Nagashi with Japanese superstar Utada Hikaru. It was a #1 single and end credits theme in the hit movie Evangelion 3.33. It was included on her triple Platinum record Fantôme which went to #1 in 20 countries selling one million copies.
Benbrick recently met Ricky Gervais after his original music interwoven with scenes from Derek received 1.2m plays in 1 week. Ricky Gervais called him “a future genius” and his music “stunningly beautiful”.
Benbrick wrote Gasoline with Troye Sivan. The EP TRXYE reached #1 in 66 countries selling 80,000 records in the US. Gasoline has been streamed 15 million times on Spotify and described by Troye as “the one that is the most personal”.
Benbrick’s debut artist EP is Closer | Closure. It is a heartbreakingly honest and modern take on the break up record with sparse but dynamic production framed by haunting vocals and intense lyrics. It has drawn comparisons to Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie.
Benbrick was additional composer on #1 German movie Welcome to the Hartmanns, worked on Disney’s The Lodge, and has music synced in TV shows around the world. You can contact Benbrick on me (at) benbrick (dot) co (dot) uk
