Ben Khan is set to release his sophomore EP 1000 on 11th May via his own Blessed Vice imprint. Here’s the second cut from it titled “Zenith.”
Khan crafts a gently dirty guitar ballad that flits between new wave, funktronica noises and soulful futurisitic R&B-pop cherry-picking from each genre for a blend that seems effortless. Khan describes the story behind the track as: “A superhero goes to die by lying on the sun, ashamed of what he has done, he begs his love for forgiveness so he can return. But his fate is sealed, and he slowly burns to death. What he has done is not to be made clear. The term ‘Zenith’ can be used to describe the highest point of ones success. But in this story, the Zenith reached is the astrological point where he meets his demise on the sun.” Stream it below.
