Benjamin Carter Shares New Single ‘Black Boys on the Radio’

Caribbean- American singer and songwriter Benjamin Carter has just shasred his brand new single Black Boys on the Radio, an upbeat indie/alt-rock song. 
What I like the most about this song is its infectious energy that instantly got me energised to carry on with my day. I am very fond of the way Benjamin Carter's powerful vocals are packed with so much confidence and emotion, soaring effortlessly over the upbeat melodies while connecting the listeners to his relatable storytelling. 
The title track of his upcoming EP, set to arrive on June 21st, Black Boys on the Radio is a song about the disparity in American culture that praises black artists and athletes while also marginalising and stereotyping all others that look just like them. This message is wrapped around a high-energy alt-rock production packed with soaring guitars that are nicely intertwined with punchy drum beats that create an overall warm, feel-good and anthemic atmosphere. Check it out below!



Benjamin says on the track/EP,
The song and project can be summed up almost entirely based off the very first line in the song 'Black Boys on the Radio.' The first line says 'she says black boys always play on the radio, I said, ‘its strange how you listen but don’t have time to watch me grow.'  It's not enough to pay the actor, rapper, or athlete and say “look we aren’t racist” we must each - black, white, latin, asian - etc be vulnerable and willing to own up to our mistakes and look for ways to grow. This is why the chorus sings 'and I know if I cry it’ll make you stay, so please don't, please dont run away.'
