Ben Watt, former frontman of Everything But The Girl, is expected to release his first album in more than 30 years on April 29th. Hendra will feature a combination of languid folk, distorted rock and buzzing electronics described by Watt as “folk-rock record in an electronic age”.

The title track, “Hendra”, is portrayed elegantly in this video. The soulful lyrics and minimal accompaniment meld beautifully with the story of the shopkeeper.
