Hercules & Love Affair's breathtaking video for their new single "I Try To Talk To You" feat. John Grant premiered on ssense.com to critical acclaim. Now available on the official Hercules & Love Affair channel.
Produced in conjunction with the international online retailer ssense.com and System Magazine, the video was shot by renowned British director David Wilson in Los Angeles. Wilson has directed films and videos for the likes of Lady Gaga, Arctic Monkeys, Metronomy, Tame Impala, and The Maccabees.
Shot in monochrome, two male bodies intertwine. Ryan Heffington's fluid choreography moves them in a stirring, cinematic exploration of the physical form; innate with both shadows and strength, it offers an ever-evolving expression of who we are.
The track features 2014 Brit Nominee John Grant, whose solo albums Queen Of Denmark and Pale Green Ghosts featured at the top of many end-of-year polls. His voice and lyrical ability for translating hardship into elegance provided the genesis for the album The Feast Of The Broken Heart.
The video proves a fitting accompaniment to Grant's lyrical contribution. "He tackled the story of becoming HIV positive" says Hercules' Andy Butler "and while I mentioned to him that he did not need to go there if he was not comfortable, in that beautifully punky, spirited and courageous way he has about him, he told me that was what the song was going to be about. What came of it is an elegant song featuring John pouring his heart out."
Commenting on the video Butler said - "Collaboration for me is always the most fulfilling when there is an emotional connection with my collaborator. David and I share a great sensitivity, a playful innocence and an optimism around sexuality - this is evident in the video for "I Try To Talk To You." When I viewed the treatment, I was brought to tears by the poignancy of the piece. This sensitivity coupled with his intuition for moving images has created one of the most stimulating video pieces for Hercules ever," says Butler.
John Grant too thought the video "beautifully choreographed and HOT, although I've yet to see a relationship go THAT smoothly."
"I Try To Talk To You" is the second single from the album "The Feast Of The Broken Heart' released on Moshi Moshi on May 26th. "I Try To Talk To You" is released June 9th. Hercules & Love Affair's European tour starts May 8th.
