When then Benson sisters decided to leave their home state of Hawaii to pursue a career in the music industry, it led them to the star-studded metropolis of Los Angeles. It was a dream for the four sisters and their band, Crimson Apple, consisting of lead vocalist/keys Colby Benson, guitarist/vocalist Shelby Benson, bassist/vocalist Carthi Benson and percussionist Faith Benson, was on its way to the City of Angels. It has not been the smoothest ride for the siblings, but they have made the absolute best of it and their hard work and tenacity landed them a record deal with Amuse Group.
“I think there is something about the apple metaphor of our name that ties in with our move,” Shelby Benson mused. “Hawaii was our Garden of Eden—we were sheltered there—and now we are in a crazy big place, and some of that innocence is gone.” And that loss of innocence is not always a bad thing. It exposed Crimson Apple to a new world of hardship and dedication.
This dedication from Crimson Apple culminated in the recent release of their latest single, “Can’t Get Out of Bed”, co-written by LYRE (Annalise Morelli, Alina Smith). The pop anthem starts out with the heavenly vocals of Colby Benson and then jumps right into an undeniable, upbeat tempo layered with a simple, catchy melody. It is intensely inspired by K-Pop and alternative themes, but is not necessarily groundbreaking. But groundbreaking is not what we always need. Sometimes we just want a track that we can dance to and Crimson Apple provides that.
If you are looking for something that is beautifully written, wonderfully produced and stunningly executed, then there is no reason for you to pass on Crimson Apple. They tick off all the boxes of a band that is on the cusp of stardom.
