Benson Boone struggles to “face the dark” in a break-up’s aftermath. “Nights Like These,” off his newly-released Walk Me Home… EP, rattles the confines of his heart. What’s left of it scatters against the walls, ever closing in around him to a suffocating degree. “I fight the urge to write the words up in my head that I know I shouldn’t send,” he sheds light on the push and pull inside his brain. “It’s hard to heal when I keep stealing glances at your picture / So I look away again.” Boone slides his voice adeptly into and out of his falsetto, as he agonizes over every single moment that seems longer than the last.
