Benji Lewis - Home For Now EP
Aussie muso, Benji Lewis has been a pleasure to watch this year. The artist has teased track after track from his Home For Now EP, before finally dropping the whole EP earlier this month. The EP uncovers reflective experiences, a sense of belonging and place and explores the journeys in life. The sheer emotion expressed by Benji is not only captured by his enchanting voice, but also through working collaboratively with indie electronic producer, Golden Vessel.
Home For Now is a seven track EP that transports the listener on a contemplative musical voyage.
‘Drift’ captures the luscious intonation of Benji’s voice and harmonious beat. ‘Drift’ is a song that’s devoted to Benji’s love of being in the sun and by the water and this establishes a reminiscing tone. The track allows the listener to experience a sense of bliss and serenity.
‘For You’ begins with a mystic piano soundscape that merges seamlessly with Benji’s mellow voice. ‘For You’ is about falling in love with someone special, but it’s a hard road when distance interferes, with your love being elsewhere.
A stripped back score is paired with Benji Lewis’ moody vocals to form ‘In Time’. This emotive track tugs at the heartstrings, and is the core of a reflective and emotional EP.
Home For Now is a beautifully honest EP that resonates with the listener with the themes of homecoming, a sense of place and belonging and journeys in life.
