It’s been almost an entire year since Stina Tweedale released “In Plain Sight, her third record as Honeyblood, which saw her working with super producer John Congleton. But lucky for us, especially in these trying times, she’s got a wee treat for us in the form of a music video for the album’s frustration-fuelled track “Gibberish” is the serrated latest single from longtime indie rock mainstays Honeyblood, one taken from In Plain Sight, their most-recent LP. You can order transparent-orange-vinyl, black-vinyl, CD and bundled versions of it from their webstore right now.

“I wrote this song to reflect the absurdity of the current political climate,” Tweedale tells us of the song’s inception. “Now more than ever we are told things daily that are simply not true or are used to manipulate us. How do we know what to believe? Who has our best interests at heart? It’s becoming ever more difficult to navigate these questions.”

The video was shot in a back alley which could only belong to Glasgow, the city Tweedale calls home. Director Gareth Goodlad of Dangerkill Productions tells us: “To me the video is about being taken over by your own self perception.” And this really does come through with the effects and trippy visuals used – Tweedale’s face coming to life as the artwork from In Plain Sight is both super cool and super freaky in equal measures. Tweeddale concludes: “I am exceptionally proud of this video and the stunning job Gareth from Dangerkill Productions has done! We work so well as a creative team and I love seeing his mad ideas spring to life!”

Honeyblood’s third album sees Stina Tweeddale finding her most ambitious form and steely focus yet. Three albums in she has stepped forward to finally claim the mantle of the project she birthed seven years ago as a her sole vision. Stina takes the reigns in collaboration with none-other than super-producer John Congleton (Angel Olsen, St Vincent) for the most definitive Honeyblood LP to date, consolidating the Glasgow-born band as one of the most important UK names. On lead single, The Third Degree Stina’s arguably perfected the fine art of the punk-rock ode-to-the-shit-head-ex. ButIn Plain Sight is as sonically gung-ho as peak era Garbage, or the modern day likes of St Vincent; big, bold, songwriting no longer content to be tied to one limited genre. Woven with mysterious themes of illusion and deception, Tweeddale describes the album as “one big trick”. Being hoodwinked never felt so exciting.
