Hercules & Love Affair ‘Do You Feel The Same’ (Official Video)
Bringing us the perfect blend of disco and house, HERCULES & LOVE AFFAIR have released the video for their standout single ‘Do you feel the same?’ from their third album ‘The Feast of the Broken Heart’. Known for their energetic live performances, this video has Hercules all over it.
The video, directed by AlexandLianne, was shot using an infra-red camera and features creative outfit design from renowned fashion designer Bernhard Wilhelm to put a twisted fluorescent spin on the post-apocalyptic desert scene. The video also features performances from contemporary ballet dancer and choreographer Josh Johnson and other dancers from the Forsythe company to match the soulful 90s house vocals from Belgian singer Gustaph and bouncy energy of the track.
For their third album, front man Andy Butler had a vision and stated at a press conference ‘I wanted nasty basslines, stormy, bleary-eyed sounds, fiery, rough, tough and ragged old school house productions that sounded almost techno. I didn’t want polite, I wanted aggressive.’ We can all agree that ‘Do you feel the same?’ certainly captures this vision, and the rest of the album is no exception.
There is also a remix EP available on Beatport which features remixes from house legend Derrick Carter, Deetron and Andy Butler himself, each injecting their own signature sounds.
