Faris, you dark horse
Just when you think you’ve got music all figured out, Faris Badwan from The Horrors and Cat’s Eyes turns up on Hercules & Love Affair’s comeback track.
It’s called ‘Controller’ and features Faris singing “move me/it’s all I want/use me/it’s all I want/because I love what you’re making me do” in a sexy whisper.
The only thing better than listening to it is to imagine Faris performing in the music video in a club where the dancefloor lights up. In fact, the crowdfunding project starts right here.
Apparently the hook-up came after Hercules & Love Affair’s Andy Butler heard The Horrors’ live reworking of Frankie Knuckles & Jamie Principle’s ‘Your Love’ and got in touch.
Faris’ explanation: “I agreed to work with Andy on the condition that he would take me on a tour of Ghent’s S&M clubs. Latex or no latex he was fun to write with – it’s different to stuff I’ve done before and I really enjoyed his way of working. He has a great ear for melody. It was a good deal.”
