Watch: Du Blonde dons a papier-maché mask in the surreal, strangely celebratory video for ‘Angel’

Du Blonde dons a papier-maché mask in the surreal, strangely celebratory video for ‘Angel’

It’s the latest cut from forthcoming second LP ‘Lung Bread for Daddy’.

Du Blonde - the current nom-de-plume of the artist FKA Beth Jeans Houghton - isn’t one to tread the path oft travelled.

In the video for recent single ‘Buddy’, the singer covered herself in a bath-full of spaghetti; this time around for fuzzy newie ‘Angel’ she’s got some other props to help her - namely a papier-maché mask and a man in a plastic horse head.

Of the track, Du Blonde states: “The line ‘So help me God I hope that you weren’t lying when you laid my body down’ is a reference to me ending a relationship with someone who had promised me a lot of things. It ended pretty abruptly when I realised they had never planned to go through with any of our plans. I wanted the song to sound like that first walk you take away from a situation like that. Angry, dumbfounded, but finally free.”

And if there’s anything that sums up that feeling of freedom, it’s dishing up some sweet, sweet riffs next to your vacant-looking horse friend, we can all surely agree.

The track is taken from Du Blonde’s forthcoming second LP ‘Lung Bread for Daddy’ - set for release on Moshi Moshi on 22nd February.
