Ben Wood & The Bad Ideas, “One Day I’ll Say It”
Ben Wood & The Bad Ideas challenged themselves to put out a single a month for all of 2020. “One Day I’ll Say It” is the band’s offering for October.
“One Day I’ll Say It” is a song about holding on to something that should have been shared long ago. It charts the frustrations and yearnings born out of the need to communicate something before the moment is forever lost, becoming the life sentence of never having said ‘it.’
Singer Ben Wood noted:
“One Day I’ll Say It” was a real labour of love for us during the writing and recording process. We changed the key of the track a few times to give it a dark, yet patient sonic footprint. We arranged the track to have a desirous, craving nature thematically whilst being tense and building urgency and insistence.”
The official music video was filmed on location in Woolwich, London, England.
“One of the most exciting challenges for our project has been committing to releasing twelve official music videos. Having an official video to accompany each single means that every song is punctuated with its own visual identity which is interwoven with its musical presence. It’s been a lot of work especially with our monthly turnaround this year but it has been completely worth it.”
“The support we’ve had for all of the releases for our 2020 project has been incredible. We are so delighted and grateful.”
All of the band’s monthly 2020 singles to date, including the new release, “One Day I’ll Say It” have been spun by legendary Los Angeles DJ, Rodney Bingenheimer on ‘The Rodney Bingenheimer Show’ as well as charting on the ‘Radio Indie Alliance’ chart alongside the likes of Greenday. They have also featured on Planet Rock Radio and the BBC.
