“All New Low, took everything out of me.” said Gideon. “While on tour with The Preatures, I found myself working on tracks more and more, up at all hours, in transit, in hotel rooms, wherever I could setup. I was obsessed. I felt like I wanted to push myself more. I had some time in Sydney between tours so I contacted my old friend and producer, Tony Buchen with some songs and ideas for an 80’s/90’s new wave/soul record. I told him, ‘if I do it I have to go all out. I don’t want to sound like I ever have before’.”
While recording ‘All New Low’, Bensen was heavily influenced by hip hop and beat making. “It’s a world I never really explored until now. I was inspired by acts like N.W.A, Bomb da Bass, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus and D’Angelo’s ‘Black Messiah’ and wanted to incorporate that into what I was doing”.
