Ben Dyleuth, a musical multihyphenate, attacks Armour with a soulful energy that is as feverish as it is tender. Serving as the closing track to Dyleuth’s four-track EP Swimming West, Armour is a successful experimental R&B project to add to his long list of achievements. A multi-instrumentalist and natural performer, Ben Dyleuth is no stranger to staunch authenticity. The first generation American artist was raised to revel in musical diversity, and Armour is evidence of just how beautiful and impactful that was.
The track’s beauty is derived from its various musical textures. With vocals like velvet, he navigates through Armour‘s poignant and relatable story: loving someone despite their impenetrable emotional walls. If only they could remove their armor, they’d see you’re right there waiting to give them a love they’ve never seen before. His ode to love comes in the form of an alternative R&B offering, and Dyleuth’s showmanship really shows in the track’s last half. His technique, soulful and sexy, involves weaving together intricate harmonies and a skillful groove. With so much character and swagger, Ben Dyleuth is setting himself up to become one to watch.
