Today, New Zealand’s platinum sensation Benee drops the music video for her song “Happen To Me”. “Happen To Me” stands out as the fan-favorite track from her critically adored full-length debut album, Hey u x.
The gothic visual finds Benee at the center of the table during a surreal The Last Supper-style royal feast. She sits on a throne alone as guests enjoy medieval delicacies. As she flips through tarot cards, she turns over the death card only to be greeted by a man on a pale horse before finally disappearing from the table. As the song grapples with her own fear of death, the video personifies this existential struggle. Over a soundtrack of hummable guitar and lithe synths, she confesses, “I think about these things too much. My mind likes to wind itself up. And I don’t get a lot of sleep. ‘Cause what if they happen to me?” Ultimately, Benee upholds what has become a tradition of captivating and cinematic videos with “Happen To Me.”
Of the video, Benee says, “Stoked to be sharing this music video with everyone! I filmed it with a bunch of mates, and it was the coolest set! Hope you love it as much as I do”.
