M(h)aol unveil Jennifer Body's inspired music video just in time for Halloween

The perfect start to spooky season.

Irish pop band M(h)aol have unveiled the video for their latest single No One Ever Talks To Us, and it's the perfect start to your spooky season.

Inspired by the 2009 parodic slasher film Jennifer's Body was directed by band member Zoe Greenway, also taking inspiration from other media that potrays women in horror; Barbara Creed’s The Monstrous Feminine and Julia Kristeva’s Powers of Horror.

Speaking on the new blood-soaked visual, singer Róisín Nic Ghearailt said: "No One Ever Talks To Us is an amalgamation of our own personal experiences of being in a predominantly female band in a predominantly male genre, but also a synthesis of the autobiographical experiences of Carrie Brownstein, Kim Gordon, Kathleen Hanna."

Róisín went on to say that her vocal performance on the track "sound in parts like I was bored, which is true.

"We've been having this conversation for decades. It's time to move it on."

Hailing from Dublin, London and Bristol, M(h)aol - pronounced "male" - release their debut EP Gender Studies this Friday. 

The group will then embark on a UK tour, visiting Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester, London and Bristol before heading to Paris.
