Benjamin Love is a first-generation Korean-American artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. Love pulls from late 70’s disco, soul, and funk tracks to create the tropically-infused pop stylings of Touch.
“Touch” was originally the concept for a novel I was writing about a man who falls in love with his computer. As the computer starts to realize that her inability to die is keeping her from understanding the human experience, she begins to fantasize about all the beautiful ways she would like to die. She keeps reliving her favorite fantasy of falling through rose colored clouds to her death but every time she hits the ground she wakes up, unable to experience death.”
I know you want me to be your all.
Some kind of complicated lover.
Another face from another time.
A borrowed dream from a borrowed life.
But in this dream you call me up.
Tell me that I’m strong enough.
I swear that I’ll make it good enough to last.
With all this sound around me now.
Falling faster through the clouds.
I always wake before I hit the ground.
I need your touch.
I need your love like I did before.
I care too much.
I blame it all on the way you love.
I had enough of your sad sad songs.
You think you know where I’m coming from.
It’s you and I on this spec we call life.
It’s what you need.
