These are and this is DIAMOND DAYS, the sparkling debut album by Bento – the new musical creation from Ben Gillies, drummer and co-founder of Silverchair.
Honest, uncluttered, open-hearted, Bento is Ben’s baby, but it sounds like a full band that has been playing together forever. Pulled together from a thousand ideas Ben has collected over the years, there’s a distinctive sheen to the 12 tracks that make up DIAMOND DAYS, a unique cohesiveness and melodious energy.
A big part of the Bento focus is art as well as music, and Ben collaborated with artist Aaron Kinnane to produce a series of distinctive mixed-medium collages for every one of the songs on Diamond Days.
The Bento app brings that experience to mobile and will let you "Bento" any image you like!
