‘Fabulous Creature’ is the brand new single from Massachusetts-based dark-pop singer/songwriter Anne Bennett, and it’s a synthy, bassy, moody, pulsating little tune! Drawing on inspiration from a wide variety of acts – Siouxsie and the Banshees, PJ Harvey, and Kate Bush to name just a few – Bennett has been able to carefully craft a sound that is uniquely hers, and listeners are paying attention. With its dramatic, rich, and introspective soundscape, ‘Fabulous Creature’ sees the artist finally embracing her true self, and understanding that there’s nothing wrong with being different.
“I’m a fabulous creature, I’m the phantom inside your head,” she belts out. “I’m the evil that sits beside your deathbed.” Proving herself to be a fantastic storyteller and lyricist, it’s Bennett’s vocal performance that also deserves a special shout-out. Powerful, pure, and authentic, we at Indie Top 39 will be keeping a close eye (and ear) on this highly talented and bold musician!
‘Fabulous Creature’ is a powerful, intense, and quite simply smashing tune from a seriously gifted artist! INDIE TOP 39
What does the song mean to you?
‘Fabulous Creature’ is about me finally accepting myself for who I really am and realizing that it’s okay to be different, it’s okay to be crazy! The song is also a calling card for people to embrace their flaws and find strength in that discovery.
What inspired you to share the song with the world?
I felt this strong urge to get this idea out that I’m not ashamed to be who I am anymore. I suffer from depression, I’ve been in treatment programs for borderline personality disorder, and you know what? A lot of people will look down on you because of these taboo things, but I just don’t care anymore. I’m finally free.
Who do you hope the song resonates with the most?
People who feel like the black sheep, the outcast. People who are depressed, anxious, angry, weird, think outside the box…I want them to find hope and strength in this song.
What would your life be like without music?
Life without music would not be worth living.
