benwork – “Original Sin”


A mystique-filled single from benwork, “Original Sin” builds from moody vocals and ghostly acoustics into chilly piano additions, alongside immersive lyrical pursuits. “It’s a song about being disconnected from yourself and anxious about that feeling,” the artist explains.

Hazy guitar strums and gently reflective bass proceed into introspective vocals, lamenting “I can’t seem to get down from here.” Twangier guitars and twinkling additions adorn a compelling second half, where vocal reflections on a lack of self-trust resonate alongside the more textured intensity. “Original Sin” is a compelling success from benwork.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
