Watch: Honeyblood – Bud [Premiere]

03 October 2013, 14:58 | Written by Lauren Down

Swiftly following their already revealed, Rory Atwell produced, track ‘Bud’, Glasgow duo Honeyblood have a brand new video.

-One half of a double A-Side single due out next month, ‘Bud’ is possessed of a deep charm; its country rhythms mixing perfectly with a keen pop sensibilities. Stina Tweeddale’s vocals certainly have an air of Bethany Cosentino about them, providing a subtle undercurrent of darkness to proceedings while Shona McVicar’s drums provide a strong, straight backbone for the tracks meandering guitar hooks.

The video, shot in a mansion house just outside of Hereford and directed by Camille Benett, is “a weird dreamy wonderland” Stina explained to us. “We wanted to recreate the feel of ‘Daisies‘. That film inspired us a lot. Camille also loves it so we both had a very similar vision and I think that the video portrays that. It fits with the bittersweet ideal that ‘Bud’ is.”

It’s pretty damn twee – all tea cups and woodland frolics – but we love it anyway.

Honeyblood will release their debut 7″ single ‘Bud’ / ‘Kissing On You’ on the 4 November via FatCat.You can pre-order it here.
