Du Blonde has shared a video for “Medicated” featuring Garbage’s Shirley Manson. The grungy alt-rock track will appear on the singer-songwriter’s forthcoming LP, ‘Homecoming’, due out in the spring, though an exact date is still to be confirmed. Discussing the part computer animated, part live action clip, they said: “I shot the video in my childhood bedroom using a green screen Girl Ray gave me at the start of lockdown.

“The spiders are a reference to a hallucination I had in my early teens where I pulled back my bed covers to see thousands of spiders writhing around in my bed, which now I see as a result of extreme anxiety. A lot of the scenarios in the video are a celebration of the things about me that I feel people might feel shame about.

“There’s so much stigma around taking medication in order to ease mental health conditions, so I wanted to express my feelings on the subject which is basically ‘I take medication and I’m stoked about it because thanks to that I’m still alive’.”

Du Blonde’s last album, ‘Lung Bread For Daddy’, landed in 2019.
