Grace, humility, longing and acceptance come together on “I Am With You”, a sharp and affecting offering.
Benjamin Francis Leftwich has this unique ability to capture the true depth of human feeling by conveying complex emotions it in an honest and beautiful way. That theme abounds in all his catalogue to date from the pastoral musings of Last Smoke Before The Smoke Storm to the wandering hymns within his latest record After The Rain.
New single “I Am With You” showcases Leftwich in a new light. Whilst intricate beats and vocoder replace his trademark acoustic sparsity, the hushed urgency of this release is the thematic link that ties it into the rest of the output. There is comfort in consistency and Leftwich’s music is consistent. Consistently immediate, consistently vulnerable, consistently gentle.
“I Am With You” is the first taste of Leftwich’s new EP released through Dirty Hit this summer
