Beth Jeans Hiughton is back in her Du Blonde guise with a new album, out Ron April 2nd 2021 on Beths own Daemon T.V. label. She’s drafted in some stellar guests including Shirley Manson, Andy Bell (Ride/Oasis), Ezra Furman, The Farting Suffragettes, and members of Girl Ray and Tunng.
She’s released a track off the record, featuring Ezra Furman, called ‘I’m Glad We Broke Up’. Of it, Beth says, “It’s our take on a 60s girl group/glam rock explosion. I feel like Ezra and I have been travelling towards a duet for years and we finally got our shit together,” reveals Houghton.
It’s sprinkled with scuffed up riffs and scuzzy guitars, as Ezra takes the opening, as they blast through something that could have been chiselled out of the Ramones songbook, with just a touch of added finery, and it just so happens to be just about the most catchy two minutes (and a bit) you’re ever likely to hear.
just go see if we’re wrong (we’re not), here
