You’ll love Mischief, the freshly dropped jam by Zach Benson and Gregory Dillon. It has that unique summer pop vibe – just what you need to push through during the quarantine.
Every day we scour the gay interwebs to unearth and bring your attention to upcoming artists doing amazing things. This duo is right at the top of our list this week.
Mischief is about escape from the mundane reality of the suburban summer for the two artists. In a way, it’s also our escape from the reality of the pandemic spreading like bushfire and grounding livelihoods.
The song is a reminder that despite what’s going on around us, we can choose to look on the brighter side and do things differently.
Officially released on Friday, July 17, 2020, Mischief is a collaboration between rising pop stars Zach Benson and Gregory Dillon. The two have over 4 million combined streams across all platforms and have captured listeners worldwide, especially within the LGBTQIA+ community.
Mischief follows Dillon’s latest single, “Plastic Ferrari,” and will be featured on Benson’s first full-length project to be released later this summer.
From a suburban boyhood to Brooklyn, Gregory understands the sad pop euphoria. He was primed for it in the early days by secretly following aerobic workout tapes.
Gregory hopes to bring a sense of nostalgia to the listener. Remind you of those good old days (And boy do we miss them!) His energetic synth-driven production, sensitive vocals, and fascination with a conceptual design is the perfect recipe for escapism.
A Virginia native, Zach now lives in Brooklyn and hopes to inspire audiences of all identities (and especially queer kids) to live authentically and love unconditionally.
He’s a musician and producer who has been making a name for himself in the pop scene since 2017. His “hard-hitting, synth-heavy production style coupled with an introspective, confessional lyricism” has gained him attention from fans across the country.
Mischief will have you “feeling good when playing bad,” and exploring your “deviant” side. Dance along and let your pandemic quarantine blues melt away.
