slenderbodies

slenderbodies makes music that feels familiar yet unique as well as hushed yet
impactful. The Line Of Best Fit proclaimed that slenderbodies
“conjure an immersive world” with their “genre-blurring” music, while Complex
has described their songs as “subtle but infectious,” and Billboard praised their
“intimacy” and “daring.”
The next year, the pair returned with a second EP, and signed ‘fabulist’ to Majestic
Casual records. Their career was truly set in motion as lead single “anemone” currently
garners more than 90 million plays across
platforms.
Max & Benji followed up with two EPs, ‘fabulist extended’ and ‘soraya’ which brought
them to their 2019 debut album, ‘komorebi’ released via Avant Garden. Recorded in the
woods of Mendocino, CA over 2 weeks in late 2018, the pair delved into concepts of life
& death, and what it means to be the truest version of yourself. The album was released
to critical acclaim in fall of 2019, with songs like ‘belong’, ‘moods’ and ‘arrival’ earning
the album over 60 million streams across platforms.
As the covid-19 pandemic hit in 2020, the pair returned to creating music remotely and
released ‘are we?’, which included collaborations with Crooked Colours, Tim Atlas and
Joey Pecoraro. The album was their final release with Avant Garden as the duo parted
ways and began to write their next release, which would become ‘simple shapes’, a 16
song full length record released in mid 2022 through Independent.
Throughout their 7 years of activity, the duo has since shared the stage with the likes of
Eden, Louis the Child, Poolside, Gothbabe, Big Gigantic (at Red Rocks), Still Woozy,
Half-Alive, Passion Pit, PVRIS, Milky Chance. Max & Benji have also played choice
festivals such as Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, Life is Beautiful, Electric Forest,
Okeechobee, Hulaween, Hangout, Lightning in a Bottle, Live Out. They have also
embarked on sold out headline tours for ‘komorebi’ and ‘simple shapes’.
Now, slenderbodies returns and invites you to immerse yourself in their fourth album,
“the sugar machine” out this september. The indie pop duo, comprised of Max Vehuni
and Benji Cormack, have spent the last two years exploring the wistfulness of lost
youth, and the fleeting moments we pursue to try to feel innocent euphoria again. Dive
into an energetic, euphoric and nostalgic new sound as the pair stretch their roots
beyond the breezy, silky grooves of their original catalog.
Enter “the sugar machine” and give yourself to the highs and lows of your own
nostalgia, dream up some old dreams, and escape into the music
