Hercules and Love Affair – the name itself combines images of strength and vulnerability, masculinity and femininity, as well as a classic disco troupe. Their music on their self-titled album debut followed suit. Strident beats but sweetness at the core. Music with a plan of attack but an identity as fluid as that of its creators. A gloriously burnished fusion of three decades of dance, from disco to house, acid to synth-pop, Derrick May to Giorgio Moroder (and let’s not forget Yazoo), but sounding like no other dance record before – or since.
And now they’ve gone and done it again. The troupe’s second album "Blue Songs" represents the best that dance music can get – still bursting with freshness while in touch with its roots. As mainman Andy Butler says, “It’s a softer record in some ways, and at other moments a more aggressive record too.” The album also reveals more about his world and his songwriting, resulting in a more honest, and yet more universal, record.
