Aldous Harding Releases Playfully Apocalyptic Video–Coming to The Echo in LA Tomorrow Night (6/22)

Jun 21st, 2017 in Music

Having just discovered the talented Aldous Harding a while back, we now have a much better feel for this extraordinary performer. Harding has received rave reviews from her current tour and recently stole the stage on Later with Jools Holland (watch below after the new video). Now Harding has released the official video for scintillating song Blend off of her critically-acclaimed new album, Party. About the video (directed by Charlotte Evans), Harding has said, “The concept is based on that awful scene from ‘Apocalypse Now’ where the playmates pile out of the helicopter. The costume [Ed.: nearly identical to one of the Apocalypse Now playmates’ get-ups] 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.” Watch the alternately hilarious and beguiling new video below followed by her performance of Horizon on Jools Holland.

Check out and obtain tix for her Tour Dates afterwards (including tomorrow night-6/22-at the Echo in LA) and pick up Party HERE.
