Music is a fundamental part of our DNA, evident since day one when the brand launched at the height of Manchester’s iconic Madchester movement. Spearheaded by well-known names such as The Hacienda, New Order, Stone Roses, The Smiths, 808 State and Happy Mondays, the era revolutionised the 24-hour lifestyle and it wasn¹t long before the Bench hoody became a staple wardrobe piece for this generation.
With music always intrinsic to ourplans, from Dpercussion Festival in Manchester in the 2000’s and later the illustrious Warehouse Project, we have since partnered with iconic music festivals including Melt! In Germany, Nuit Sonores and Astropolis in France as well as Sonar, Dcode and Benicassim in Spain. We have also worked with Resident Advisor teaming up with them for the Real Scenes film series shot in Detroit, Chicago and Berlin.
Having championed emerging artists across music genres from indie to EDM since our inception, our support of fresh, new talent is ever evident as we recognised the talented Jess Glynne and formed a partnership before her meteoric rise to fame when her hit ‘Hold my Hand’ reached number 1 in May 2015.
Bench Music represents our passion for music and is your weekly dose of sound that reflects our style!
