Ben + Vesper’s HONORS is approaching soon. So far we’ve heard “My Father’s Eyes” and saw a little bit of their recording process with their session for Shaking Through. “Knee-Hi Wall” shows off their talent for assured, elegant pop songs and rich harmony. I especially like the three-note piano melody that repeats throughout the song. I’m not sure if that’s Sufjan Stevens, but the band’s one-sheet says he “… plays a formative role with his exquisite piano work, defining key moments throughout,” and those keys are key. Listen:
