Benedict Cork’s latest single, ‘Nice Guy’, is a poignant exploration of the complexities of dating and the quest for genuine connection. Embracing indie pop with finesse, Cork delivers a track that not only showcases his musical evolution but also his knack for weaving heartfelt narratives through soaring harmonies and candid vocals.

In this song, Cork delves into the struggles of modern dating, particularly within the gay community in London. With raw honesty, he reflects on the temptation to play games and adopt a persona diametrically opposed to his true self in the pursuit of love. ‘Nice Guy’ serves as a thought-provoking commentary on the paradoxical nature of relationships, where being genuine sometimes feels like a disadvantage.

Cork’s lyrical prowess shines through, especially in lines like “baby I know I could be the man of your dreams if I learn to f*** you over just like every other guy that you’ve been with,” capturing the ironic and tongue-in-cheek essence of the song.

Building on the success of previous singles like ‘Reasons I Loved You (I Can’t Think Of One)’ and ‘Soulmates’, ‘Nice Guy’ further cements Cork’s position as an artist to watch. With nods from BBC Radio 1 Future Pop, BBC Introducing, and Retro Pop Magazine, as well as playlist support from Spotify GLOW, Cork’s forthcoming album, ‘Notes On A Hopeless Romance‘, promises to be a captivating journey into the intricacies of love and human connection. Scheduled for release on May 10th via Kartel Music Group, this album is undoubtedly one to anticipate for fans of authentic storytelling and infectious indie pop melodies.
