Du Blonde aka Beth Jeans Houghton releases another superb fizzing new track from her forthcoming album Homecoming . Previous singles have featured Ezra Furman and Shirley Manson but this time it’s just Houghton replete with a swaggering bassline, cool as fuck fuzzed-up guitars, soaring melodies and raw lyrics. It’s the first album Du Blonde has engineered and produced herself and she’s also self-releasing the album on her own label as well as launching a clothing brand.
Of the track she says “It’s about being trapped by certain mental health issues and accepting that as part of your being, coming to terms with the fact this will inevitably affect your relationships and being ok with that in the knowledge that someone somewhere will eventually be ok with who you are.”
