If you are torn emotionally by someone/something, then Benjamin Lazar Davis’ latest single “Choosing Sides” will help you peacefully seal the crack in-between. In a minimalistic canvas, Benjamin strikes his strings and softly blends his croons with the melody, yielding an intimate self-diagnosis of his contradictory mind. Stream below:

“Choosing Sides” is from Benjamin’s upcoming record Nothing Matters, which will be out on May 4th. He will tour the UK in support of Ana & Elizabeth and will be opening and play bass for Okkervil River. Go see him juggle:
