As history has always showed us, GLBT people have always been the ones to set the trends in music, followed furiously by the rest after the impact of our music is felt on the world.
Hercules and Love Affair - 'Do You Feel The Same'
Hercules and Love Affair, the queer collective started by Andy Butler, effectively rendered electro dead with the revival of disco in their 2008 hit single, ‘Blind’, featuring Antony Hegarty. The success of this single and the group’s first album helped to bring disco back in a new and serious way to electronic producers and bands. Over time, the group has featured out artists like Nomi Ruiz, Shaun J Wright, Kele Okereke, Kim Ann Foxman, in addition to Hegarty and of course Butler himself. The group is back for their follow-up to 2011’s Blue Songs, called Feast of the Broken Heart, out on April 14th, with ‘Do You Feel The Same’ as the lead single. The pulsing jam is rife with the great beats and sleek vocals, this time courtesy of HALA’s touring vocalist Gustaph.
