“ihatehimtoo" - Zach Benson

Zach Benson is back with an astounding new single - “ihatehimtoo”.



You know when your best friend starts dating a total whack-off and you’re just waiting for them to break up so that you can have your good sis back?


That’s “ihatehimtoo”. Pop artist and producer Zach Benson delivers a yell-in-your-car,

thrash-in-your-room banger perfect for anytime you need a good teenage scream.

After spending a good part of lockdown back in his hometown, Benson felt really inspired by all of his favorite melodramatic pop punk and indie records from high school. “ihatehimtoo” takes listeners straight back to the Myspace era with its cyber soundscape and pop culture influenced lyrics. Benson’s co-writer on the song, Brandon Gorman, was a former bandmate from his teenage emo band days. Benson took his Warped Tour nostalgia and general frustration from the pandemic and channeled it into this angsty anthem.
