Aldous Harding has revealed a new video for the single ‘Blend’, plus she has announced a forthcoming UK and European tour.
Taken from her latest album, Party, the visuals for ‘Blend’ were created by Charlotte Evans, the New Zealand filmmaker and editor also responsible for Harding’s previous videos for ‘Horizon’ and ‘Imagining My Man’.
Inspired by Francis Ford Coppola’s legendary war film Apocalypse Now, Harding explains:
“The concept is based on that awful scene from 'Apocalypse Now' where the playmates pile out of the helicopter. The costume was handmade for me, it turned out great. It's in the bin. I spent eight hours dancing on a Lazy Susan, it was easy really. Obviously I know what it is... The song itself was written in an AirBnB in Bristol the night before going into the studio.”
Last week Harding announced her full tour European schedule for the Autumn. In addition to the London and rescheduled Bristol shows, Harding will headline dates in Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Brighton and Birmingham in November.
