Du Blonde, formerly Beth Jeans Houghton, has returned with a new moniker, new sound, a new single and news of a forthcoming new album.
Signalling this change of direction musically is latest single, ‘Black Flag’, offering a first glimpse to what we might expect from this fresh direction and the forthcoming album. ‘Black Flag’ demonstrates this super-charged powerful new sound with devastating effect. Thunderous drums, rumbling bass, heavy guitars and a vocal that burns with anger replace the refreshingly odd, off-beat and experimental pop music done so well by her and her band The Hooves of Destiny. It’s a rather dramatic makeover; raw, savage and done with plenty of poise.
Du Blonde’s record will be released sometime in the spring via Mute Records. Listen to ‘Black Flag’ below and get a free download here.
