Happyness' Benji Compston steers new solo project...

Happyness' Benji Compston adapts a new solo guise with the release of Jelly Boy single 'Lavese Las Manos'.

While Happyness are long-time Clash favourites this new project is pretty fresh to our ears, with Benji finding some of his ideas simply landing outwith the group's identity.

Saving them up for a rainy day, said downpour is incoming, with Jelly Boy aligning with Cannibal Hymns for a flurry of releases and live shows.

'Lavese Las Manos' leads the way, a ramshackle indie rock thumper with a curious sense of humour and some excellent word play.

Jelly Boy comments...

“I met a guy once who told me how he once lost something precious down the U-bend of a sink and assumed it was irretrievable, only to have a more practically minded person remind him what a U-bend is for. I guess that’s what this song is about. I also compulsively wash my hands and like Lorca.”

Part of his new 'Everybody Is A Universe' EP - due out on April 5th - you can check out 'Lavese Las Manos' below.
