Mr Ben Sir are a recording collective rooted in the North East of England creating effortless and elegant fragile folk. Their debut release the ‘Transport EP’ found favourable reviews and airplay from Drowned in Sound, BBC 6 Music, NARC Magazine and Amazing Radio.
The follow up single ‘Cameras Don’t Click’ has had airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music and is backed by an exclusive b-side ‘My Victoria’
'It’s a beautifully elegant, mature trio of songs, perfectly fabricated to soundtrack miserable, rainy Autumn nights trudging down Northumberland Street avoiding early Christmas shoppers. Opening song ‘Cambridge’ in particular feels similar in tone to Alligator-era The National.' Drowned in Sound
‘listen to the chilled effortless vibe of Mr Ben Sir, slow leisurely Americana from Tyneside’ Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music
