SONG002 A1: Benoit & Sergio - Full Grown Man
the second release on thesongsays seems to find what we might call "romantic techno" in a happier place. sort of. while bruno pronsato's 'the make up the break up' focused on the darker side of romance, benoit & sergio's 'what i've lost' raises a similar question: can we ever be really satisfied?
benoit & sergio chose 'full grown man,' as the opener. the bravado of the initial vocals--'i need a lady to understand i'm a full grown man'--references the masculine posturing of, say, led zeppelin's "whole lotta love," but also calls attention to the vulnerability and neediness of this masculinity. and when we are seduced into drinking a little wine at the track's midpoint, we realize that this seduction is a mere maneuver to avoid a deeper loneliness. if, lyrically, 'full grown man' points to certain emotional complexities, so, too, does the music: somber synth lines overlay short, brassy stabs, as the intricate sequencing shifts its moods like so many teenage boys.
