The new video for ‘Stained’ from London based HMLTD is certainly not for the faint hearted.
What’s actually going on the video is difficult to say, especially with the ultra-flashing strobe lights, but there’s a lot a lot of blood and squishy body parts that are more than likely to make you feel a little squeamish.
There’s a definite punk vibe to the beginning of the track, particularly in terms of vocals, but as the song goes on, the band explore a frankly quite haunting realm of dub-style-bass that is accompanied with some terrifying visuals.
Directed by Jenkin Van Zyl, the video gives an intriguing insight into what is to come from HMLTD. ‘Stained’ comes from the band’s debut double single, following on from ‘Is This What You Wanted’.
You’ll have to watch the video to understand.
