David Knight - 18th Sept 2017

HMLTD are being hailed in some quarters as the UK's most thrilling new band, and their theatrical mix of glam and goth becomes a rich source of inspiration for Ilona McIlwain in her first video for the band.

McIlwain portrays HMLTD frontman Henry Spychalski like a consumption-flecked Romantic poet in a crumbling English pile, accompanied by pouting fellow bandmembers and haunted by memories, in the deliciously atmospheric mini-epic for the sprawling Satan, Luella and I.

It's McIlwain's full debut in music videos, following her impressive crossover into directing with the film of Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya's installation at Tate Modern earlier this year, and suggests an exciting future lies ahead.
