Hercules & Love Affair return to the fray with “Controller”, a pulsing, propulsive new song that signals the first salvo from their long-awaited new album. Featuring The Horrors’ Faris Badwan on vocals, it takes the Hercules’ disco-house heritage and fuses it with starker post-punk stylings. A taster both sonically and aesthetically of the new album, Controller connects new wave, post-punk and 80s electro within the clubland realm of Hercules & Love Affair. Also featured is Tuff City Kids Italo-Disco inspired remix, and Mike Simonetto homage to early 90’s West Coast Break-beat House, and then there is the superb Dub of the original….What a package!
Hearing the The Horrors’ live version of Frankie Knuckles & Jamie Principle’s ‘Your Love’, Andy realised he’d found a rock artist willing to engage with dance culture's history. With its underbelly of seamy ‘80s electro-pop yet recalling early house records by the likes of Lil Louis and Bam Bam, “Controller”’s sub-dom, master-and-servant roleplay in the lyrics work perfectly with Faris vocals delivery creating something truly quiet special.
