Watch: Hercules and Love Affair's New Video for 'I Try To Talk To You' ft. John Grant.
By Alex Panisch
New York-based musical project/collective Hercules and Love Affair have released their video for “I Try To Talk To You,” featuring “Pale Green Ghosts” singer John Grant. The track comes off their upcoming LP, The Feast of the Broken Heart.
Over a synth-heavy beat, Grant lays downs some haunting vocals chronicling the story of how he became HIV-positive. Coupled with the low-key lighting and dance-like movement, the gestalt has a very German Expressionist feel.
The “I Try To Talk To You” video premiered on ssense.com. “The Feast of the Broken Heart” comes out June 9 on Moshi Moshi.
