Music video rarely need to make sense. Take for instance, Hercules & Love Affair‘s visual accompaniment for “Release Me,” a new original song the disco-revivalists’ contributed to their curated DJ Kicks mix. Add one part hot scantily-clad blonde and two-parts bubblewrap and put them together and voilà, you’ve got yourself a music video.

As for the song itself, frontman Andy Butler says, “It features this LA DJ called Whitney Fierce singing. Great name. She has a Bananarama thing going on with her voice. I decided to do something akin to that early ‘90s mash-up thing. We pulled out old gear, early samplers, so we could get that low bit rate quality. It has that really rough sound. It’s very authentic of the period, kind of Stock Aitken Waterman production meets the Hacienda.”
