2021 so far has seen some dynamic releases manifesting from several prominent rising artists, especially since the pandemic threw a wrench into the live concert experience. One of those artists is Vienna-based solo musician and producer Benjamin Andrews, a vital versatile voice in the European Rock market who just recently released his newest anthemic single “Dream On”.
Known for his distinctively melodic Alt/Rock signature sound, Andrews with this song continues to prove that he can hit the ground running and raise the bar in the musical realm with every new release he diligently puts together. This track is not only brilliantly crafted, but is also a complete standout in today’s more contemporary modern Rock sensibility – putting together a wholesome and tastefully blended sound that is insatiably melodic and anthemic. The piano progression especially carries the melody-driven key signature and showcases Andrews’ artistic merit in the most effective ways. His vocal melodies are mid-range and parallel perfectly with the story-telling lyrics, rhythmic buildup and overall execution of an undeniably catchy song. While you can hear several artist influences, the balance between originality and familiarity is very apparent. It boasts a nostalgic blend of the 90s Alt/Rock era, the early-mid 2000’s emo movement and today’s modern Rock aura. It’s a solid track that showcases several angles of Andrews’ ability both as a musician and producer.
“Dream On” also sustains great pacing and never drags out in any way. It has dynamically visceral production value and truly grasps onto an authentically atmospheric approach. It also has that staying power where the song stays with you even long after it’s over – leaving each listener with anticipation for what Benjamin Andrews comes out with next. Once you take a listen to this single, you’ll definitely be enticed to dive deeper into his discography and career altogether. You can find “Dream On” on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms. You’ll be glad that you did.
