After capturing hearts last September with her hit ‘Soaked’, 19-year-old New Zealander, Bene returns to us in the form of ‘Evil Spider’, a brand new release which sees the singer embody herself as a spider trying to weave a web around somebody she’s into.

The track is just an inch of the signature sound Bene has crafted over the years, with playful bass lines, chilled soulful vocals and a bubbly guitar melody.

When asked about the song, Bene explained: ‘Evil Spider’, is about wanting someone that’s already taken. When writing the song, I didn’t wanna make the lyrics too obviously evil, so I thought I’d turn myself into the spider, making it a lil lighter and making the song revolve around me weaving webs to lure the person, catch ‘em like a spider then reel them in. I remember humming ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ in the studio, which inspired the playful vibe of the song.”

Bene released ‘Evil Spider’ with the announcement of debut EP, which is set to be released on 28th June 2019.


Born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in a small town in upstate New York, Hunjiya (hun-jee-yah) got her start in the arts by learning from her visual artist mother.

Hunjiya’s music combines memorable, yet confessional storytelling within the elements of indie-pop, r&b, and folk. Her sound is a blend of delicate vocals dipping in and out of soulful touches and a combination of electro beats and instrumentation. Add in a hooky chorus and you’ve got her latest single, ‘SAID’.

Hunjiya’s upcoming EP Look After August is on the horizon to drop later this year.
