Let Me Out
Already a radio mainstay and fresh from their UK tour, Bens Brother make a blazing return on August 6th with the hook-laden new single 'Let Me Out'. Hot on the heels of the eagerly awaited 12-track debut album 'Beta Male Faitytales', it's the second song to be taken from the dazzling LP and roars with super-sized vocals that echo an early Rod Stewart.
Written by lead singer Jamie Hartman, it's available on CD, 7" vinyl and to download from July 23rd with the bonus track 'Home', also taken from the forthcoming album. Produced by Martin Terefe, whose credits include KT Tunstall and James Morrison, 'Let Me Out' is a piano-driven pop triumph that shifts gear into a beautiful, melody-fuelled chorus and was a highlight of their recent live shows.
Influenced by vintage R&B and early Rolling Stones, Jamie grew up, as the name suggests, in the shadow of his elder brother, Ben - an accomplished sportsman and soaring ad executive. After years of busking on Portobello Road his songs began turning up on other people's albums. It was this that pushed him to form Ben's Brother. Now, they're poised for success in what looks set to be their most accomplished year to date.
Ben's Brother are: Jamie Hartman (lead vocalist), Kiris Houston (keyboards/guitar), Dan McKinna (bass) Dave Hattee (drums) and Morgan Quaintance (guitar). Their forthcoming live dates are:
Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer
