Following her impressive performances with Charli XCX and The Libertines and her recent studio sessions with the likes of Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend, and producer Daniel Ledinsky (Tove Lo, TV On The Radio), CuckooLander – the exciting project by Holly Hardy – shares the video for her new single ‘Mother Nature’, out 13th November.
A stylishly fetching ode to nature, introduced by Holly Hardy as…“This song is a tribute to Nature. I have always found it hard to express what nature means to me but after finding out some really sad family news, I found spending time in nature and understanding nature offered me a sense of serenity and spirituality, similar to what i imagine religion offers people.”Speaking about the video she says: “With the video we wanted to bring back elements of educational videos you would watch at school mixed with retro TV shows like Art Attack, Blue Peter,The Really Wild Show and Newsround. We mixed some 80’s analog documentary footage with our own footage just because i wanted to go on a woodland hunt to find things like odd pieces of wood, colourful eggs and skulls. My pet snails Party Boy and Mingey also take starring roles in the video and totally outshine me.”
