The last time (and, admittedly, only time) we caught up with Melbourne’s Benji Lewis was way back at the start of 2016.
That was for his single at the time… the stunning ‘Never Leave You Lonely’.
‘Fast Forward’ three and a half years and he’s upped sticks to Los Angeles and has just dropped another gorgeous single.
“This song is about getting out of a certain state of mind,” Benji explains. Not wanting to think about or look at a current situation, relationship or particular person right now. We are never really stuck, and my subconscious was telling me this while I wrote the song. I was feeling like some much-needed alone time and craving change.
“I was listening to a lot of H.E.R. and Sabrina Claudio at the time. I’ve always loved R&B music and that’s just what we ended up creating with this one. It feels sexy, natural and honest to me.”
Like his 2016 single, the thing that has us melting with ‘Fast Forward’ is Benji’s magical voice, which never fails to pack an emotional punch.
