After a two-year break, Hercules & Love Affair (DJ Andy Butler´s disco/dance/house lovechild) released a video for their single ‘Controller’ featuring English front-man for The Horrors, Faris Badwan.
The video is directed by artist Rei Nadal and has Emmy award winner cinematographer Franklin Dow as Director of Photography, but if you look at the video, the dancer with the bandages feels reminiscent of a Lucian Freud painting. Except for the giant floating dark lips and platinum teeth, which pretty much makes me think of Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson also.
Will it be another Blind? I don’t think anyone can predict that, but it is certainly sexy, hypnotic and risky. We think those ingredients are an excellent formula for success.
