Plan B - 'Lost My Way'

Ben Drew releases another soul-infused statement

It begins with a soul-infused vocal. Then comes a pitch-shifted voice, some discordant pianos, a bitter rap about “mum and dad” who “never made much of themselves” and an ominous growl that sounds prime to drop at any point. It should be contrived, but it’s just... not. At all. And as Ben Drew repeatedly spits “if you don’t believe in something, then you’ll fall for anything”, we find ourselves falling deeper.
