Glasgow garage-pop duo Honeyblood's song Ready for the Magic, from upcoming LP Babes Never Die, explores the “explosive nature of infatuation” and delivers fuzzy hooks aplenty. The video, a collaboration between the band and Thomas James, follows the band as they stumble on a tribe of feral young girls in rural Scotland. And what a dangerous bunch of 11 year olds they are.

The leader of the video’s feral girl tribe also finds herself pride of place as the cover star of the album, in beautiful photographic artwork shot by German photographer Amira Fritz. “I loved the idea of this feral tribe of young badass girls causing chaos,” explains frontwoman Stina Tweeddale. “It’s an image that chimes with what the album is all about.”
