Indulge Your Freaky Cowboy Fantasies With HMLTD’s Bizarre New Video

The London punk band return with the glam pastiche of “To The Door.”

HMLTD are one of the most musically confounding and interesting looking new bands in London right now. A DIY six-piece from the south of the city, over the past year they’ve gained a cult following on the back of a couple of singles which combined razor-sharp post-punk with glam and industrial influences.

The video for their chaotic third single "To The Door" — premiering above — is directed by Jenkin Van Zyl, and takes in glam rock, sci-fi, and spaghetti western-style imagery. Front man Henry Spychalski, with hair slicked back like Thin White Duke-era Bowie, starts the video dressed like a BDSM cowboy before hopping on top of a bucking bronco flanked by ghosts straight out of a fun fair haunted house. Speaking to The FADER via email, the band said: "It’s time to zoom out. The picture is widening. As the image focuses, you begin to see the filth that lines its margins.”

HMLTD play London's Scala on May 3.
