Stuttering – Kiss Me Again

 

Ben’s Brother are a five-piece English band, headed by founder Jamie Hartman. The band was named after Jamie’s big brother Ben, whose shadow he lived in as a teenager.

Their debut album, Beta Male Fairytales, was released on 6 August 2007, and went to number 3 on iTunes UK and achieved Gold status. Successes followed in Europe and North and South America.

A song from their album, “God By Another Name”, became the first iTunes Store free single of the week to be made available in the iTunes Plus format. Beginning in September 2007, their song “Stuttering” was featured in a Dentyne Ice commercial in Canada and the U.S. This turned into a larger partnership where the band gave away free songs to fans and flew a fan to see them play in Texas, via a specially created website.

The band made their American festival debut at South by Southwest in March 2008. That same year, the band were nominated for an Ivor Novello Award in the category of Best Song Musically and Lyrically for “Let Me Out”.

Dropped by EMI and despite the Ivor Novello nomination and worldwide success of Beta Male Fairytales, the band formed their own label and recorded their second studio album in Autumn 2008. The first single from the album, “Apologise”, was released in early 2009 and was co-written with Natalie Imbruglia (who recorded a version for her forthcoming album). The band was then signed to Island Records for the forthcoming singles from the album Battling Giants, which contains a duet with Anastacia, “Stalemate”, and other vocal collaborations including Jason Mraz on the title track and Jack MacManus, Cass Lowe and Pete Gordeno doing group harmonies on the other tracks.

On 15 February 2010, Hartman announced via his Twitter page that the band would continue to release music without the support of the label Island Records. On 23 October, Hartman announced via his Facebookpage that a third album would be released in late February 2012, under the name of Jamie Hartman as opposed to Ben’s Brother, although the band would remain in the same set-up.

Band founder Hartman is the co-writer of the European wide hit-single “Human” by Rag’n’Bone Man.

 

 

Lyrics

It’s been, it’s been, it’s been, it’s been, su-su-su-ch a long time, long time, long time, since anybody touch me, touch me, touch me, the way that you, touch me

So if i stutter, stutter, stutter, then i feel so-so-so un-sexy. So maybe i’ll just keep my mouth shut, at least until you kiss me.

(chorus)
So kiss me again, cause only you can stop this st-st-st-st-stuttering
Kiss me again,and ease my su-su-su-su-su-su-su-su-su-su-suffering, whoahoo

i know, i know, it’s so, it’s sy-sy-sy-sy-symbolic of everything, everything that’s wrong with me and you, so tell me what i’m supposed to do

Oooh, it’s been ages, since we’ve been really honest, but i can make ch-ch-ch-ch-changes, if you really want this.

(chorus)
So kiss me again, cause only you can stop this st-st-st-st-stuttering
Kiss me again,and ease my su-su-su-su-su-su-su-su-su-su-suffering, whoahoo
(repeat chorus)
