Steve Benjamins makes downtempo indie pop that feels thoughtful and melancholic.
In the last two years he has released 3 EPs but in 2016 has switched to releasing a new single every month or two.
When I wrote this song I was thinking about how words can betray
intentions and slip from under our grasp. We try to share how we feel
but we run up against the limits of language and discover a lack of
fidelity between our language and our experience.
But I think love is passed between us in channels that flow deeper
than words. And so there is no reason to despair when our words don’t
get it right. I find that to be a comforting thought.
