Hercules and Love Affair are set for their UK return

at this year’s Meltdown festival.

The effortlessly cool four piece New York group first came to our attention back in 2008 when hunky DJ Andy Butler served up a slice of familiar 70s disco with a modern house/dance twist in the form of first single, Blind:

Andy and co. return to London on 6 August to headline this year’s Meltdown festival at the Southbank Centre. They are due to be joined on stage by this year’s curator Antony Hegarty – who features as guest vocalist on Blind – for the first combined live performance of the global smash hit.

During their dance inducing set HALA will also be joined by Queen of Denmark singer/songwriter John Grant, who takes lead vocals on HALA’s new release, I Try to Talk to You, the first taster of their upcoming album due early next year.
