Ben Brown Releases Funky New Single, “Socks & Sliders”
Singer-songwriter Ben Brown has released his neo-soul infused single “Socks & Sliders.” Brown combines jazzy chords, soulful vocals, and catchy choruses to deliver this feel-good single. “Socks & Sliders” is now available to stream and download on digital music platforms worldwide.
Ben Brown plays on ‘tongue & cheek’ lyrical themes to keep the vocals as bright as the groove and the beat it sits on. The song consists of playful lyrics of the joy of wearing socks and sliders despite the negative public opinion and ‘fashion disaster.’ With his lighthearted lyrics and catchy beat, you can’t help but bop your head along. The laid-back and airy attitude masterfully blend with his smooth and silky vocals. To further emphasize the humor and playfulness of this witty single, he includes a phone call asking a friend, ‘how do you feel about people who wear socks and sliders?’ In response, his friend replies, laughing that, ‘they should just live their best life,’ underlining the relaxed and carefree theme of the song to live and enjoy life to the fullest regardless of others’ opinions. “Socks & Sliders” is co-produced and mixed by Will Paterson, and mastered by Kevin Tuffy at Alchemy Mastering.
