Benee Never Ending

Benee has shared a new music video for her latest single “Never Ending,” which follows her on a nocturnal journey.

The visuals start with the New Zealand pop star strolling down a street with her dog, before cutting to scenes in an empty industrial space with lights flashing wildly around her, and a nighttime motorbike ride. It was directed by Devan Narsai and Riley Coughlin, with production by Jaimee Brooking.

“From the start, I knew I wanted the ‘Never Ending’ video to be driven by lots of fast cuts and lots of post-production to make it a really cool visual trip!” Benee said in a press release. “The video was made with two friends of mine Devan and Riley – Devan has a really good eye for shots and Riley is super skilled at creative direction.

“I also knew Riley would kill the whole post prod side of the project! This has been my favorite video to date as I just love how well it suits the song. It was a last-minute decision to put my dog Tūī in it, but I knew she’d make my performance walking down the street feel more natural.”

“Never Ending” features on Benee’s EP Lychee, which was released last week (March 4), and the track was co-written and produced by Rostam. In a review of the EP, DIY singled out the track calling it “the pick of the bunch […] where 90s alt-rock guitars are subtly updated via a 20s alt-pop filter, paired with hip hop rhythms and the singer’s typically heart-on-sleeve lyrics for a low-key anthemic track.”

The new single follows previous releases from the EP, including “Beach Boy” – in the video for which the rising artist manifested a vampire – and “Doesn’t Matter.”

Benee will hit the road in support of the record at the end of May when she embarks on her first North American tour since 2019. The run of dates will see her perform at headline shows across the US and Canada, as well as make appearances at festivals including Governors Ball and Lollapalooza.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Has your heart ever been broken
Torn apart without you knowing?
It’s funny when you lose your bearings
But you didn’t see it coming
Treading hard inside the water
But they’re keeping your head under
Hard to get up, feeling somber
Things are worse now, days feel longer

[Pre-Chorus]
Was it something that I said?
When you look at me I feel resentment
Was it something that I said?
When you look at me I feel resentment

[Chorus]
Push me over failed lover
Am I just not enough for ya?
So much power, in your hands and
You just cut me off like nothing
Try moving forward
For what it’s worth, try moving forward
We tripped and fell
A long way down, a long way down
What do we have when nothing’s left
When nothing works
A long way, a long way down

[Verse 2]
When I was younger
No preparing for this kind of stuff
Miserable but if we fall we’re just looked down upon
I’ll get up when this is over
‘Cause I’ve had enough
Told to keep it all together
Smile for everyone

[Chorus]
Push me over for a lover
Am I just not enough for ya?
So much power in your hands and
You just cut me off like nothing
Try moving forward
For what it’s worth, try moving forward
We tripped and fell
A long way down, a long way down
What do we have when nothing’s left
When nothing works?
A long way, a long way down

[Bridge]
It’s a never-ending thing with you
I think about your face too much
I want to follow every move
Don’t like it when we’re out of touch
It’s a never-ending thing with you
You ruin everything you touch
Ruin everything you love
It’s a never-ending thing with us

[Outro]
It’s a never-ending thing with you
Think about your face too much
I wanna follow every move
Don’t like it when we’re out of touch
It’s a never-ending thing with you
You ruin everything you love
Go ahead and mess things up
It’s a never-ending thing with us
It’s a never-ending thing with you
I think about your face too much
I wanna follow every move
Don’t like it when we’re out of touch
It’s a never-ending thing with you
You ruin everything you love
Go ahead and mess things up
It’s a never-ending thing with us
