New Zealand alt-pop queen BENEE is making her 2023 debut today with an energising new single called ‘Green Honda’ which is going to get your head bopping. 

She wrote this song in Los Angeles with the help of two other super talented female songwriters Elvira Anderfjard (Tove Lo, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift) and Luka Kloser (Jojo Siwa, Dylan Conrique), which as she describes below was a refreshing experience in itself, but the song also has a very cute story behind it. 

“It was such a refreshing experience to be in the studio writing with two other young women. There is so much that you just don’t need to explain when you’re working with your true peers. It’s intuitive. They just get it, and that’s amazing.

‘Green Honda’ was quite a light-hearted song at first and some parts just flowed immediately. I headed straight to Europe on tour after the writing session so I had to go back and forth with Elvira and Luka to get the production just right.

I wanted the energy of the song to capture the idea I had of writing a song about knowing where you’re at and what you need to say and not being afraid.

There is a personal history to the ‘Green Honda’ story… my green Honda was my first car, passed on to me by my grandmother when she gave up driving. I call him ‘Steve’, and he’s on the cover of my ‘STELLA & STEVE’ EP. We’ve had lots of adventures together.” ~ BENEE
