Curious electronic pop with a daring new video...

Alex Highton is a real original.

The Scouse artist has developed a unique voice, ploughing his own furrow within electronic pop's wide fields.

Third album 'Welcome To Happiness' arrives on March 30th, and it could be Highton's most striking, fully realised work to date.

We're able to share new song 'Benny Is A Heartbreaker', a wonky, curious, and ultimately pretty catchy synth pop track that comes at you from unexpected angles.

The video uses footage from haunting experimental dance film Topic I et II, a rare, underground masterpiece by Pascal Baes.

Playing with time and our experience of it, it's an effective, highly affecting watch.
