I really wasn’t sure about Hercules and Love Affair after purchasing their album. Everyone around me seemed to have fallen in love with them instantly, but even though I enjoyed the album and could appreciate their massive appeal, it just wasn’t happening for me.
This however changed when I got an email offering free tickets to their first exclusive UK gig at Digital in Brighton last month. I skipped along with a handful of friends not really knowing what to expect. I was blown away. Their stage presence was both energy filled and modest. Digitals amazing sound system really did them justice and I left feeling like I’d been part of something special. I strongly recommend you go see this band when you have the chance, because if you haven’t already fallen in love with them, trust me. YOU WILL.
Heres a little treat, the video for superb single “Blind”. An epic video for and group of friends who are set to become an epic band.
Thanks to Pitchfork.TV for the video.
