Du Blonde’s reincarnation from former Beth Jeans Houghton is here, and it’s not going to go unnoticed. The new single ‘Black Flag’ from her upcoming album smashes through the old baroque pop genre into new, angry, and exciting territory. With sultry vocals and a bassline full of anticipation, the track makes you want to start a riot – pitchforks included. As a taster of her new punkish style, ‘Black Flag’, according to Du Blonde, is “a good representation of the direction of the album”. This gives us high hopes that the rest of the album is sure to pack a similarly good punch, although the singer has let on that “there are a few quieter, thoughtful tracks” mixed in.
