DOMINANCE is the second single taken from the IR's 3rd album that focuses on the still taboo subject of Male Male sexuality. The late 70s styled prog track draws influence from Einstrursende Neubauten, Nine Inch Nails, and Peaches then sets itself up in the visual worlds of Tom of Finland, the castro clones, and Robert Mapplethorpe - lustfully swaggering and rocking out on themes of base-level impulsive desire. The video by Mertcan Mertbilek animates images by Italian photographer Paride Mirabilio and illustrations by Darin Tufâni of the models/adult actors/artists Valentin Braun and Pierre Emö together with Jamie Irrepressible in a location in East Berlin.
