Growing up in a family of musicians made it much easier for BINNY to explore his calling at an early age. By the time he was six years old, the Maryland native learned piano and eventually became a self-taught guitarist. As he strives to represent Asian Americans in mainstream music, BINNY delivers an alluring new single, “Retrograde.”
Written about the desperation and temptation we feel when we’re completely infatuated with someone, “Retrograde” also makes note of people’s apparent change in behavior when Mercury is in retrograde. Between the enticing lo-fi beats and BINNY’s lovelorn lyricism, “Retrograde” is an impeccable display of the emerging artist’s captivating soundscape. Whether you religiously follow astrology or not, we confirm that “Retrograde” is well worth a listen.
On “Retrograde,” BINNY shared,
“I’ve definitely experienced being infatuated with someone that may not be the best influence on me, but I’d risk it all to put them first. It’s inspired by the unexplainable reasons one may continue a relationship that’s toxic.”
