Hercules & Love Affair 'Controller' Video

Hercules & Love Affair debut a pulsing and propulsive official music video for 'Controller' – out now via mr intl / Big Beat Records.  The track features The Horrors’ Faris Badwan on vocals, fusing starker post-punk stylings with Hercules & Love Affair leader Andy Butler’s disco-house heritage.  The video features direction from London artist Rei Nadal. Nadal has previously directed music videos for Primal Scream, Reptile Youth and Vaults, as well as fashion films for SHOWstudio (including “Girl,” which she codirected with Nick Knight).

 “I've had some really humbling and special moments of intersection with fashion in my career,” Butler explains. “From writing music for established entities like Chanel, an institution whose visionary leader has such an enormous legacy, to being fortunate enough to have a legendary enfant terrible like Bernhard Willhelm direct the styling and costumery for "Do You Feel the Same?”

“But, it has been similarly rewarding working with individuals like Rei who are 'experiencing lift off’ – asserting their developing yet powerful voices or visions. I cannot wait to see how things develop for this burgeoning talent.” 'Controller' is the first single off Hercules & Love Affair’s long-awaited fourth studio album, slated for a July release by mr intl / Big Beat Records.
