Clara Benin finds beauty in unlearning people and places on new song “small town”

The multi-awarded Filipino singer-songwriter releases a hopeful, bittersweet tune about taking control of one’s journey by not sticking to the past

Filipino singer-songwriter Clara Benin drops a song about leaving the past behind, and embracing the newness that comes with it.

On her new single “small town,” the Parallel Universe artist continues the journey of acknowledging that the world is changing and that unlearning people and places could be an enriching way of taking control of one’s life and destiny.

“small town was inspired by my high school experience living in the province, where it was inevitable to bump into someone you know when you're out in public,” Benin reveals. “It's a post-breakup song about trying to find yourself again and struggling because everything around you reminds you of your ex.”

2022 has been a great year for Clara Benin. Aside from getting featured on a Times Square billboard in New York ahead of the International Women’s Day, the folk darling received two nominations at the recently concluded 8th Wish Music Awards and collaborated with international artists such as British singer-songwriter Lowswimmer. On top of her achievements, Benin also dropped a song called "Affable Dork," which garnered rave reviews for "adopting a jazz-pop approach."

Taking surprising new directions as it examines the delicate balance between infatuation and fantasy, the rising folk-pop artist’s new song brings a beloved fictional character to life, only to realize that some things don’t really work the way we want it to be. 

Benin adds, “the song is about the thought process of a girl overthinking her relationship with an affable dork because she feels unworthy of his attention. As you navigate a complete picture of the story, you later on realize that fantasies only remain as such and don’t translate to reality.”
