London multi-instrumentalist & producer Benbo dropped the “Nurvel Durd” video as a Christmas surprise – it’s now getting a full release on PKLZD.

Featuring a live human man falling through a hedge into an animated world, the video – already hailed as ‘amazingly surreal’ by The Sunday Experience’s Mark Barton – matches the somewhat unpredictable, curious style of the music, a meshing of odd jazz guitar samples and springy beats.

It’s a fittingly maverick end to Benbo’s 2015, during which he launched his first EP, saw ‘If You Feel Emotional’ knock Foals off Indie Shuffle’s Alternative chart #1 spot, and swept plaudits from London to Bavaria, Melbourne and Cape Town for co-producing Pablo’s ‘Feels Like’, a Gilles Peterson premiere that became an official Record Store Day Exclusive.

He is currently finalising his début album, which is published by Cooking Vinyl, and publishing a new drawing every day at benbo.ninja.
