Benji Lewis shares beautiful new single, ‘For You’
Melbourne artist Benji Lewis has come out with a brand new track, ‘For You’, which is a little taste of his forthcoming EP, Home For Now. Lewis has a phenomenal voice, and this track is the perfect evidence to show it. His entire vocal delivery is filled with feeling as he pelts out the lyrics while seamlessly harmonising with the multiple layers and samples in the production; the synergy is flawless.
‘For You’ came from a love he found in the city of Los Angeles, and sparked some real inspiration. Talking about the track, Benji had this to say:
“What came through in this song and the lyrics are all the feelings and thoughts I have about the situation; all that comes with wanting to be with someone who is somewhere else – in my case, another country. But it’s a song about how intense and right a love and feelings like this can be, knowing that long distance can be hard but that you can’t pretend it’s not there.”
The production makes way for beautiful synth chords that fill up the beat like smoke fills a room, with a dynamic mix of sounds creating some interesting textures, while the percussion is deep, without becoming overpowering to the melody. This track shows a quickly developing sense of maturity by having all these intricate musical elements without pushing them to the extreme and losing some instruments in favour of others. Instead ‘For You’ has a balanced mix that allows the listener to revel in the sounds.
Benji Lewis has got our ears perked up for more music and the release of his forthcoming EP can’t come fast enough.
Get ‘For You’ here.
