Benjamin Marshall is a promising singer songwriter with some cool interesting ideas and a fresh sound that intelligently blends folk, pop and alternative into one distinguishable sound. His song “Our Own Key,” taken straight out of his new album “The Final Giraffe,” showcases his unique style and invites us all to sing along in a message of unity, truly using music as the best tool to bring people together. With bright guitar and organ sounds, a steady beat that carries you along and catchy melodies with lyrics we can relate to, this song definitely has a lot to offer.
Upon first listening to this song, especially as the bridge unfolds, it is very difficult not to imagine the music being played live in front of a crowd that is singing and clapping along joyfully. It is just one of those tracks that carries you along, no matter who or where you are. It has the power to unify people while also showcasing a great ability to craft a good immersive track. Apart from this, the performance quality in the recording also makes it even more obvious that this music should not only be played on the radio but also enjoyed live in concert with the Benjamin Marshall’s energy and that of the rest of the crowd.
