Stop what you’re doing because Ben Gillies has followed up his exciting debut single “Breathe In, Breathe Out” with a second release “One Foot In Front Of The Other”, and what can we say, you’ll crush on this one big time! The husky vocal stylings of Gillies are featured on this dark, folk-rock influenced track, and depicts an existential tussle within ourselves and with each other.
The song’s title is a motto for life: Keep going, put one foot in front of the other. The arrangement of the track mimics this, with repeated patterns and lyrical recurrences , building but never yielding.
“No matter what’s put in front of you, keep going, push forward,” said Gillies. “It’s like when you’re walking directly toward someone in the street and you need to pick a side. Well, when it’s yourself, you already know where togo. Just get out of your own way. But don’t forget to smell the roses.”
A promising and unique artist, Gillies most recent single takes on a new direction for the singer, drawing on his love for performing to assert himself as a powerful and distinctive force within the music industry. We will be following him closely as an artist to watch!
