Prolific Lancaster lo-fi pop types...
Mr Ben and the Bens

Mr Ben And The Bens simply cannot stop making music.

They could try, of course, but why would they want to? The band's whimsical lo-fi pop music has a folk character, occupying a world that is both familiar and slightly strange.

New single 'My Museum' is incoming on Bingo Records, and it finds the 6Music favourites delivering another tightly-wrought earworm.

From the sighing melody to those gently brushed chords there's a gentleness to the songwriting that is matched only by the wry observational lyrics.

Mr Ben himself tells Clash: “I’m not a great musician technically speaking. I play the guitar upside down and the keyboard with two fingers! But I guess being naive means you can write a different kind of music and approach it from an original perspective.”

We've got first dibs on the video - tune in now.
