Lande Hekt has released the music video for her latest single December, in which she is filmed cutting off her own hair for real.

The track features her Lande Hekt’s debut album Going to Hell which was released earlier this year.

Speaking about the video Lande Hekt explains, “After I’d asked Martin (longtime collaborator Martin Wisniewska) if she wanted to shoot the video, I told her I was going to cut my hair first and she said something like ‘don’t you dare cut your hair without me getting that shit on camera.’  So I waited until filming day. My hands were shaking as I chopped my hair shorter than I’ve had it since I was 4 years old, whilst also trying to remember the words to the song and not cry. The song itself has (attempted) elements of The Sundays in it, in the percussion and rhythm section, and we wanted to nod towards that 90’s style a little bit with the video. My bedroom was a very available venue during a lockdown and also the song is about overthinking which is a pretty bedroom-y activity.”

For debut album Going to Hell, Lande played all the instruments with the exception of percussion.  The album was recorded by her friend Ben David of The Hard Arches whilst she was there touring with him in February.

Of the album, she says, “Some of these songs have taken me a long time to write.  As a whole, this album represents a time when I was coming out as gay. I’m no stranger to queer punk and queer politics. I’ve always taken a special interest for obvious reasons, but this record is important to me because it’s the first time I’m releasing anything as an outwardly gay person.”
