Abraham recorded and produced Sirens in Melbourne with the help of friends and long-time collaborators Jono Steer and Leigh Fisher. The album also features a collaboration with Sara Bareilles, who connected with Abraham online and became friends with him several years ago.

We listened to You and Me by Ben Abraham

This is a gently poppled song with wavelets of sound and true emotion running right across it.

The rolling rhythms are hardly visible — transparent almost — as the compassionate desire and that warm-hearted nutbrown voice clutches and rubs your sensitivity

There is haunting nostalgia here too (how can I stop loving you when my heart tells me to?) And genuine desire.

Is this where the lovelution starts?
