A brand new single from Benjamin Andrews brings through a beautifully complex, Elton-style piano thread and subtle strings, alongside which Benjamin’s uniquely raspy, recognisable voice provides short lines for a poetically honest single.
Rising up from humble, quiet beginnings, Dream On soon kicks in with a mighty hook section – offering a pop-rock ballad that quickly connects and begs for audience participation.
Raw vocals make for an accessible delivery, and the lyrics feel genuinely fresh yet still relevant in their accessing of this topic. The very idea of Dream On is positive in this case, not dismissive but inspiring – keep dreaming, dream big, and hold on for your time to shine.
The song builds and builds to represent this concept, progressing from simplicity to fullness and bright energy – your moment coming into view, the instrumentation enveloping you as the passion rises and the guitar solos run wild.
While there’s plenty of character to the style and sound, there’s also a cinematic feel to the track – almost as if this is the family film outro or support for a life-changing scene. Benjamin Andrews revels in the moment beautifully, and this gives the song the authenticity it needs to really move an audience.
