Download Ben + Vesper’s “Knee Hi-Wall”, New Track Off Of HONORS, Out Jan. 25 on Sounds Familyre!

Ben and Vesper’s “Knee Hi-Wall”

Shortly after the announcement of Ben + Vesper’s sophomore album, and first full-length in four years,HONORS, the husband and wife duo gave listeners a hint of what was to come by sharing the track “My Father’s Eyes”. Now, with just three weeks to go before the album’s January 25th release on Sounds Familyre, the pair is unleashing another track, “Knee-Hi Wall”, which shows a slightly different, peppier side of their collaboration. Ben’s earthy baritone and Vesper’s sweet, yet confident alto warmly combine on the forefront, backed by their ever-unusual and strangely danceable freak-pop arrangements. Ben explains it best below…

“My favorite thing in the world is to hear my songs in the hands of people I can trust.  They do the necessary violence to my writing until something new emerges. It’s like an awkward teenager threshold right before the voice change, or a dog on a walk with a new owner. ‘Knee-Hi Wall’ was a stretch for me to record because it is an ancient song and I’m generally skittish about approaching old material.  I never expected to make a disco-phonic/bloodhound-gang number, but that’s what happens when you let go of your own agenda in the studio surrounded by the likes of John Mosloskie, Steve Oyola, Josh Stamper and Sufjan Stevens. It’s wonderfully freeing.” – Ben Stamper
