Why do we like this?

My housemate was talking about a friend of hers who would be visiting soon, and we got onto the subject of his music. So me being me, I did a good SoundCloud stalk and was very impressed with his honest, vulnerable songwriting.

Benjamin Verdoes is an American songwriter, musician, and composer who, like most, has also expanded his skill-set to producing and beatmaking, with his most recent work displaying a wonderful curiosity for musical experimentation.

"Under The Layers" features Melodie as the female vocalist, and carries a distinctly Jeff Buckley-esque sound set by the plucked electric guitar and band dynamic.

What captured my attention most was the play between the two vocalists, both weaving in an out of choral type harmonies, moving into harmony with one vocalist taking the alternating lead, to create a piece that continually grows and increases in intensity. 

"Under The Layers" definitely tugged a spot in my heart, and if that doesn't make it worthy of sharing then what does?
