Now that Gen Z know who Kate Bush is thanks to Stranger Things, a number of throwback moments have been doing the rounds online, including this bizarre clip of the iconic singer making tea in truly bizarre fashion:

Loading…

For the uninitiated, Bush's 1985 hit Running Up That Hill has reached the top spot on iTunes after the track featured in season four of Netflix's Stranger Things.

By reaching an entirely new audience, the avant-garde performer's songs have experienced an unexpected revival in the charts, as has the above video of Bush's questionable tea-making skills.

As you'll see in the clip, she pours boiling water into her teapot before pouring the tea into the cups on her kitchen sink.

And there are two glaring errors including 1) her technique, which is simply pouring boiling tea all over the cups until they overflow and 2) Kate Bush is a MILK FIRST person.

The footage has since gone viral after being posted by Twitter user @enayessa, who wrote: "Any new kate bush fans must see this VERY IMPORTANT video of her pouring tea," before adding: "The mind that wrote all the love makes tea like this... makes you think."

It certainly does, and the online community agrees, with one replying to the tweet: "Crumbs, I adore Kate Bush but pouring tea like that leaves me speechless and in a cold sweat.

"I need a lie down and a thorough review of my own my tea pouring boundaries. Or perhaps I'll just pretend that I never saw that."

A second (one for the true Kate Bush fans out there) quipped: "Aah aah, bad cuppas, bad cuppas, bad cuppas - ya-ya." If you know, you know.

"Good at music, bad at pouring tea," said a third, while a fourth wrote, "Actually choked. Absolute carnage."

There were some people who defended the singer's unusual tekkers, including this one who said: "The chaos of it all!!!!! Love it! And love Kate!"

While a second declared: "This just made my day....for some reason."

We wonder what Kate thinks of her newfound success with the younger generation. As said, it all kicked off thanks to Netflix's sci-fi series, which returned for its fourth instalment last week on Friday, 27 May.

The song from Bush's double platinum album Hounds of Love features heavily throughout, and is first heard in episode one on Max Mayfield’s (Sadie Sink) Walkman.

Not only has the song topped the iTunes chart, but it’s also overtaken Wuthering Heights on Spotify to become her most popular track on the service.

All episodes of part one of Stranger Things season four are available to watch on Netflix now, with part two due to be released on 1 July.
