British alt-folk collective MOULETTES have unveiled the beautiful animated video for their new single ‘Lady Vengeance’. Taken from their upcoming third studio album, Constellations, the track also features a guest appearance from Band of Skulls’ Emma Richardson, whose guest spot is one of many to feature on the new album.

Known for their eclectic and experimental mix of influences, song-writer, cellist and vocalist Hannah Miller explains

 “People can listen to Moulettes and hear Shostakovich, Miles Davis, Pentangle, Pink Floyd, Bjork and Skrillex. That is where we’ve all come from…everyone shares in over 80 years of recorded music history.”

Other musical guests on the album include Arthur Brown, Herbie Flowers, Blaine Harrison and The Unthanks, all appearing alongside the mixture of classically and self-taught members that make up the band themselves.
