Single Review: Esser / Satisfied

Cool hair, cool clothes, cool tunes. Is it no surprise, then, that Essex-lad Ben Esser and his electro-pop-ska beats have been tipped for big things?

This coming Monday sees uber-hip Esser back with yet another super-catchy single release following debut track, ‘Headlock’. It’s a shame about the weather, as ‘Satisfied’ is a track fit for a bright, summers day. I can’t help but imagine myself lying on a warm beach with a Solero while listening to this sunny tune. The tinkling repetitiveness of the charlston-like piano is truely addictive, while the steel drums bring out the tune’s groovy reggae undertones. A warning – the chorus is lethal – one listen and it’s stuck in your mind for days. “You know a man can never win, even if you buy her all the shoes”. Ok, the lyrics aren’t exactly Shakespeare, but does it really matter? This quirky little track will still be taking over the airwaves, so watch out.

“She’s never satisfied, no matter how hard I try”, Esser complains. Terribly predictable pun, I know, but Esser – I certainly am.
