So after six years of us never appearing in a Hercules & Love Affair video (more by accident than design), I wanted us to appear in the video for ‘Rejoice'. Rouge Mary is such a ferocious performer so it was kind of a no brainer. We had to capture that energy in this video.
As a foil to Rouge’s performance, director Will Kennedy wanted to capture some of the club community around us, some that embody the essence of the message of the song. Will has a great mixed media style and a documentary angle in his work. Rouge and I felt that two boundary pushing drag performers, who we love so much, Cybersissy and BayBJane would fit the bill perfectly. We met them at the wonderfully debaucherous club Hotel Shanhai in Essen Germany. They have triumphed in the face of much adversity in their lives, and channel that triumphant and joyful spirit into brilliant otherworldly characters that they bring into the nightclub. I am so happy with what Will has captured and put together. It is bursting with colour and conveys Cybersissy and BayBJane's boundless creativity and beautiful spirits. They personify Rouge Mary's wonderful lyrics.
You can watch the premiere now on Billboard http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/pride/8030015/hercules-love-affair-premiere-video-rejoice
