As of late, Hercules & Love Affair have been dropping some wicked good releases off their forthcoming LP, Feast Of The Broken Heart.
Last month, I shared with you their awesome free download “Be With You,” and today I present you some emotionally-driven vibes with their new single “I Try To Talk To You.”
Featuring the vocals of John Grant, this song has a powerful backstory. Check out what Andy Butler, the frontman of Hercules & Love Affair, wrote on soundcloud:
“I asked John to dig deep with his lyrical contribution. I had no idea he would dig so deep. He tackled the story of becoming HIV positive, 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 singing and playing his heart out.”
Some very powerful emotions were put into this track and I think that’s what makes tho song feel so alive.
