about

Ben's first single Sink or Swim gets a new heartbeat courtesy of this new remix from Audio Difficulties.

lyrics

blue turns black before my eyes
you punched my heart so hard
I fell against the car
and bruised my side

and as I walk
along this shoulder into town
looking down
the puddles on the ground
become oceans I could drown
just from your lies

right now it’s hard to go on
but I will
gonna see this thing through
I know nothing I could do
sink or swim
is gonna carry me back to you

someday when all our anger burns away
when I could reach across
and touch the thing we lost
and make you stay

but go on and drive
to leave me in the dust so dry
this never-ending fight
has cost me boy tonight
the best friend I had
and he left so mad

right now it’s hard to go on
but I will
gonna see this thing through
I know nothing I could do
sink or swim
is gonna carry me back to you

someday

it’s gonna be cold without you my baby I know
I’ve got to go

about

Ben Kreader Los Angeles, California

Ben Kreader writes songs driven by the rhythm of the road and framed by the pain of the blues. His Chicago roots bring tornados, rain, and sky to his lyrics, mirroring the Midwest's meditative melancholy. Influenced by art-pop pioneers, Ben melds country-folk narratives and blues vocals with a dense forest of electronics and beats into heartbreaking songs of love and loss. ... more
