ben is the kid in your english class that arrives late, wears vans instead of clarks and already has a tattoo, but he consistently tops the class in creative writing. this is another simple but poetic pop slice.

While I'm not planning on going to Congrats for medical advice, I absolutely do trust them when it comes to dishing out the emotional bangers with such memorable sing-along lyrics.

I'm very into what's coming out of Ben's songwriting explorations across Congrats as well as Slowly Slowly. It feels like we're expanding the map with these exciting new landscapes for him to express himself. Lucky us to get to go along for the ride.

How you do this (to my heart)???
I reckon a lot of listeners will be shocked to hear the voice of their beloved Slowly Slowly in such a foreign setting, but having spent a couple of listens I think it's clear that this is still very Ben and it pierces through genre with skillful ease.

You're not going to have trouble finding an audience for this project with songs like these at your disposal. Putting your voice front and center with a hook like this is a perfect recipe.

Doesn't matter if you dress them as pop songs or punk songs, melodies like this will always cut through. It's a great debut from Ben. Wouldn't have expected anything else.

On first listen I was so thrown. Couldn’t believe how different this is. I love that you can do that, Ben. You set the track up so well. I love that it doesn’t take long before you jump into the chorus. It’s so catchy. It’s my favourite. So is the poetry and lyrics. On a few listens I keep finding little things to fall in love with. Love when songs can do that! You’re incredible.

You have this infectious heart pouring personality that is undeniable. It's so exciting to hear the exploration and the range of your vocal personality. I LOVE YOUR LOWER VOCALS SO MUCH!! This song is like a cheetah that crawls patiently on its prey in the verses and then swoops in the heart strings when the chorus hits. Razor sharp track!

a stunning sophomore from the familiar Slowly Slowly voice but with cutting production that's sure to get the repeat button a workout.

An intelligent and ever interesting pop jaunt, this is brilliant. I'm not sure it is legal to be this talented.

The candles are lit, disco ball is rolling and I am in love! Ben, there's such an incredible ball of emotion that is so incredibly convincing when you sing! Every time i hear your voice I am immediately crawling on the floor melting. You have swept me off ma feet!

Ben what can't you do! Wow I was expecting this project to be more of an 'acoustic' slowly slowly, but you have literally blown me away with this track! I love how different this is, but it still showcases your beautiful vocals. The instrumental work is spot on, and those melodies are spectacular! I literally can not wait to hear more from you Ben.

Let me be there first to officially say... Get outta town. I didn't expect this at all, but at the same time I'm in no way surprised to see you flexing such a genuine versatility in the way you package up your brilliant songwriting.

It's so nice to hear something completely different from you, but still hear all the trademarks that make you a fantastic songwriter.
