HMLTD are one of the most musically confounding and interesting looking new bands in London the six-piece from the south of the city, have over the past year gained a cult following on the back of a set of singles which combined razor-sharp post-punk with glam rock feel and spaghetti western-style imagery .With HMLTD,  there are no half measures. Everything about this band is channelled into their art, their music, their look and their videos. They give everything they’ve got into the delightfully complex and boundary-pushing universe they have crafted.

That sentiment and mission is none more evident than in their latest visual experience for their third single release ‘Single To The Door’, a dystopian sci-fi Western delight once again directed by collaborator Jenkin van Zyl. It opens with jangling Pulp Fiction style guitars, but then electronic womps soon take over,

Bandsman Henry  Spychalski with a look like Thin White Duke-era Bowie explained the story behind the video. “It took one day to film, it was intense. The video was recorded in London, just North of Camden, we rented the mechanical bull, I had to ride on that for about an hour. If I can say so, I was the best on the mechanical bull, I was having to swing a microphone in the air, which is actually quite difficult, while I was on a mechanical bull lip syncing the track – many times I hit myself in the face with the microphone, I started bleeding and stuff. It’s hard.”
