The 21-year old JMU student, whose debut album is expected to be released early 2019, is back on The Music Elk. We previously featured Zach’s breakup anthem ‘Running Back’.
This song, called ‘Sunset’ is about a date Benson went on over the Summer. It starts out with his unique, smooth vocals, accompanied by some clean chords and pristine bells. The chorus is really catchy and features some upbeat and sentimental lyrics.
One of my favorite lyrics in this track is “I want to know your favorite bands from high school”. For most people, the music they were listening to in high school really shapes their musical taste for the rest of their life. Definitely a cool way of potentially finding out more about what the other person was like in such an important stage in their life.
This song will take you on a little journey and if you close your eyes, you might even feel like you’re experiencing the date yourself.
