Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Benton Luke Band. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the vibes of their music.
This song put me in a good mood already from the first notes.
A sound that recalls the great country songs and that immediately makes you imagine the boundless lands of Texas while you drive with your convertible without a destination to reach and you just want to feel free.
The song is accompanied by a very nice video, a day like many others but that it is not a day like any other.
There are days in which ‘Walkaway’ is better than committing yourself to make things go… life has to be taken as it comes and there are also some bad days, the important thing is to overcome them with a smile.
This band transfers positive vibes and you can feel that they are enjoying themselves while playing together.
Therapeutic and easy music that frees your mind.
Walkaway is Benton Luke Band’s Single Out Now!
Sincere and Pure!
Benton Luke Band is an American roots rock band based out of southern California. Angels and Cowboys is Benton Luke Band’s debut album released in 2020. Although some of the content originates from many years back, the album was produced and released predominately during the pandemic. Benton and Scott have pulled together some exceptional new creations along with distinctive renditions of favorite classics.
Walkaway is the first single release after the band’s 2020 debut album Angels and Cowboys.Walkaway came about as Benton was struggling in a work situation becoming frustrated and going through emotions of reacting to the situation and how best to handle. That piled on top of observing increased raging antagonism in our society inspired the basic premise of the song. Conceptually similar to the Gambler and Take this Job and Shove It in attitude…but sometimes the situation calls for just walking away. Starting as a simple acoustic strumming song, Benton and Scott developed the song over a couple of months between sessions in the Ford Transit and home studios ultimately transforming to a driving rock beat in the verses shifting to reggae feel in chorus. The companion music video acts out a portion of the lyrics in an exaggerated, fun and lighthearted way.
