Ben Gillies has won our hearts once again! This time with his latest irresistible single “Dangerous Distractions.”
Ben uses a catchy synth pop sound that’s driven by an energetic beat, mimicking the rush of a high stakes situation. In this case, one where you have to choose between feeding into an attraction you can’t deny or stepping away. With this unique sound, he takes listeners on a journey to experience all his feelings.
Of the track, Ben Gillies said, “Dangerous Distractions is not one mood but many, and all of them part of the same grand adventure.” It opens with the fizz of discovery and attraction - the dangerous distractions - expressed through a subtle yet driving beat. This song portrays the push and pull of wanting and no wanting - of finding someone or something irresistible but wishing you didn’t - through the bop and swirl of immediately catchy synth pop that make the listener feel what the singer is going through, so that we hesitate then dive in right alongside him.
“Dangerous Distractions” is the fourth teaser from Gillies’ upcoming EP, the relative relatives EP. Much like his previous releases, he’s proven his talent as an independent musician by creating an intricate song that draws from his personal and professional life.
