Hercules and Love Affair team up with Faris Badwan

Missing Badwan? You're in luck.
The new track from dance/DJ producer Hercules and Love Affair, ‘Controller’ features none other than The Horrors frontman Faris Badwan on vocals.

“Recently I’ve been aesthetically interested in the raw experimentation of early 80s electronic dance outside the glossier new wave pop music we know from the time,” explains Andy Butler of his new material.

“Cabaret Voltaire, lots of noisier older music. It’s funny that I ended up in Belgium, considering all of the music that came from here – Front 242, Telex, and so on.”

“I wanted a vocalist who flirted with the darkness,” he adds, “someone who had a touch of an Ian Astbury or Andrew Eldritch about them, or even of Ian Curtis.”

The track is taken from the producers upcoming, as yet unannounced, fourth LP.
