BEN LEVEN: DOUBLE TIME
Ben Leven‘s new single »Double Time« combines 80es sound styles with modern songwriting and reminds of tracks by Shawn Mendes or Alec Benjamin. The hook melodies in this energetic pop piece stay in your head. Starting low and ending high, Leven describes his nights in bed unable to fall asleep because he just can‘t take his eyes off her«. His strong and remarkable voice leads through a song that evolves from unplugged guitar tunes to wide backgrounds underlined by an intense groove.
This man is in a class of his own: the Viennese singer-songwriter Ben Leven captivates with musical diversity and touching lyrics. His songs are often thoughtful but always look ahead, creating a positive mood. The catchy choruses invite you to sing along. The artist’s debut album „What Lies Behind“, released in 2018, underlines his multi-faceted nature.
Charismatic pop songs meet driving beats, atmospheric guitars meet wide choirs – all hand-made and real. The album is a manifestation of Ben Leven’s enormous repertoire. His tracks resemble a Saturday morning brunch with Peter Gabriel, U2 and Sting while Ed Sheeran and Mark Knopfler swap guitars.
Both with the arrangements of his songs and with his powerful stage presence he delivers impressive performances, not least due to his characteristic voice, with which he creates unique loops, or his energetic guitar playing, accompanied by the finest rhythms. This way, Ben Leven transforms every gig into a grandiose one-man-show.
