Benchmarks "Let You Down" premieres via Clrvynt!
"The idea for this song came after a friend called me out on something I said that I, perhaps, didn't think through. We all build our own 'houses' around ourselves based on the way we see the world, but it doesn't mean that the rest of the world outside doesn't exist. Basically, we all need to try a little harder to be kind. I used the backdrop of a rapidly developing city (like Nashville, where we live) to tell the story of tearing our neighbors down to build ourselves up, and how maybe that's not the best way to treat people. Jack [Whitis] came up with most of the musical ideas in this one. He's got a talent for writing 'misdirection' parts, as I call them. Melodic ideas that don't go where you think they're going to go, but in a very satisfying way." -Todd Farrell
