The Filipino band is also set to make its electronic-leaning debut track live on their upcoming 5-city international tour
After a triumphant homecoming concert that drew over 60,000 fans and a great performance at The Clockenflap Music & Arts Festival in Hong Kong 2023, Filipino nine-piece collective Ben&Ben started a new chapter by unveiling their latest single, “Be Something,” is scheduled to be released on June 30 at midnight.
Representing a significant leap in their musical journey, Ben&Ben’s first single of 2023 reflects their adventurous spirit. Infusing their signature guitar-driven folk/pop-rock roots with elements of city pop, tropicalia beats, and shimmering production, the multi-award-winning band takes a more electronic-leaning approach on this track. Collaboration with co-producers Timothy Run and Sam Marquez, Ben&Ben aims to expand their sonic horizons, offering listeners a new dimension to their sound. In a collective statement, they explained, “We aim to capture a mature sense of hope in the instrumentation and production, incorporating darker chords and tight rhythms to deliver a unique cathartic experience for the listener, embracing our ‘LIGHT‘ in a fresh, green, and tighter voice.
“Culd Be Something” delves into the often overlooked stage before the leap of faith. It candidly explores moments of overthinking and overprocessing, presenting a relatable narrative for everyone. “This is a song about turning doubt into faith,” shared Ben&Ben. “It means reviving hope after being trapped in a pessimistic mindset. It includes the feeling you get when you meet someone who inexplicably changes your belief in love or discovering a new love that reigns in your soul. More than being a love song, the track serves as an anthem for individuals struggling with doubt, offering a reminder of faith, surrender, and perseverance in challenging times.
In their new journey, the band joins forces with Ben&Ben Music Production, the management team responsible for overseeing the band’s operations, music production, and marketing efforts. Throughout the pandemic, Ben&Ben has been self-managed by a dedicated and efficient team in which they have placed complete trust and faith.
