Hercules & Love Affair debuted a dark clip for the sexy new dance song “Controller.” The single will appear on the dance music project’s forthcoming album, due out in July.
The Horrors’ Faris Badwan sings hauntingly on the dark electronic track. The video matches the song’s BDSM themes with people moving in eery ways amidst images of dominatrices and gagged models.
“I felt attracted to the track straight away,” director Rei Nadal said in a statement of what drew him to directing the clip. “It was the mix of the club feel with the obvious dark vibe that made the song complex and pushed me to create layers to the images, merging the explicit and the abstract.”
Hercules & Love Affair’s as-yet-untitled album follows 2014’s The Feast of the Broken Heart. The group’s mastermind, DJ Andy Butler, has yet to reveal more information on the forthcoming LP.
