Dustin Bentall has just released “Not Been Sleeping,” the first single and video from his upcoming EP High In The Satellite.
The vintage style video is homey with a folk twang that matches the track. The song was written just after Bentall lost his grandfather and right before his close friend, Jay Smith, committed suicide, so he hopes that the track will “be any sort of rally cry for mental health awareness.”
Watch the video for “Not Been Sleeping” below.
“Losing [my friend] shattered my world into pieces that I’m still collecting,” Bentall explains to Indie88. “If there’s one message I’d be happy for this song to spread is that there is someone out there who will listen if you need help. Reach out.”
Today, Dustin Bentall announces the release of a new EP High in the Satellite out February 22nd on Roaring Girl Records.
