Thomas James and Honeyblood get ready for the magic

19.07.2016 - Posted by : James Campbell

Thomas James has as good a taste in music as he does in film. The director has steadily been carving a name out for himself with cinematic macabre videos for critical darlings such as Loom and The Fat Whites.

In Honeyblood, James has again picked another hotly tipped artist to work with. The Glasgow duo have been making waves with their brand of up-tempo garage pop. Their 2014 debut bagged them a spot on several end of year lists, with near perfect reviews from NME and DIY.

New song ‘Ready for the Magic’ from upcoming release ‘Babes Never Die’ explores the “explosive nature of infatuation” and delivers fuzzy hooks aplenty. The video, a collaboration between the band and James, follows the band as they stumble on a tribe of feral young girls in rural Scotland. Needless to say it doesn’t end well.

The leader of the video’s feral girl tribe also finds herself pride of place as the cover star of the ‘Babes Never Die’ album, in beautiful photographic artwork shot by German photographer Amira Fritz. “I loved the idea of this feral tribe of young badass girls causing chaos,” explains frontwoman Stina Tweeddale. “It’s an image that chimes with what the album is all about.”
