Du Blonde Reveals "Hunter" Video, Announces European Tour Dates

DU BLONDE

REVEALS NEW VIDEO FOR
“HUNTER”

NEW ALBUM
WELCOME BACK TO MILK
OUT NOW
“‘Hunter’ is a noticeably more vulnerable-sounding cut and highlights Houghton’s strong, trilling vocals.” – Spin

"'Hunter' certainly has the emotive power and rock sensibilities of, say, 'Piece of My Heart' - V Magazine

“This soaring ballad uncovers a more vulnerable side to the UK artist.” - Consequence Of Sound
 
Du Blonde returns with a video for “Hunter,” from critically acclaimed album Welcome Back To Milk, alongside the announcement of a Shacklewell Arms residency in London and September shows with Future Islands (full details below).

The new video, directed by Du Blonde, was entirely shot in LA on Super 8 footage by Kelsey McNamee.  Du Blonde explains, “We wanted to try and get footage like the old home movies our families had when we were younger. So often footage like this is forsaken for videos shot on phones and the quality of those old memories is lost. We wanted to have something to show our kids.”
 Like her heroes of the late 60s at the Whiskey A Go Go on Sunset Strip, Du Blonde will play a three-night residency over the summer at the Shacklewell Arms. With handpicked DJs, supports and entertainment planned; the shows will be free. Tickets can be reserved from https://dice.fm/artists/du-blonde
