Working Holiday

Another year, and new music from Ben Kessler is here.

The singer-songwriter who, for the past couple of years has steadily built momentum, over the weekend dropped a new single called "April"—yes, in the middle of January. But it definitely has a very January vibe to it, as Kessler laments a past love, being stuck "in between," feeling nostalgic and not quite being able to move forward. It's a very familiar feeling for a lot of people, and even though the song certainly reflects heartache and instability, he manages to make it into a frothy pop song.

Last year, Kessler released his debut Cruise Control EP, a five-track project which manages to capture his authenticity, vulnerability and evolution as a music maker. We anticipate this is probably only the first we hear from Kessler this year and not the last.

Hear "April" below.
