He may be a fresh-faced 21 year old, but Ben Alessi is a fully-formed creative mind. The New York City transplant funneled the city’s chaotic influences through his vibrant musical soul, and out came six distinctly danceable and colorful tracks. Each is catchy enough for radio play, and each is a strong sonic perspective.
Music and Other Drugs is proud to present musical duo Teenage Love’s brand new single “You Can Touch Me.” Teenage Love is composed of Anna Lidell and Katy Gunn. Their story is unique, as Anna is from Copenhagen and Katy lives in Brooklyn, New York. The two met in New York City, and began to make magic. The new single “You Can Touch Me” was birthed from Katy Gunn’s experience in Denmark.
Ben Alessi is an up-and-coming New York City singer-songwriter with a taste for the tropical and a love for the electronic. His voice is an instrument in itself on single “U” as he plays with melodies and staccato. There’s something in his delivery that says “Caribbean,” and now that Haitian-born Michael Brun has tackled the remix, it’s definitely got that island touch.
