HERO takes you deeper into his after-midnight world with a cinematic new video for “Stay The Night.” The single (a highlight of his Dirty Work EP on Fool’s Gold) takes gritty disco and R&B textures to new destinations, aided by reworks from house champ Demuir, heady beatmakers Beach Season, and an emotional new “reprise” from HERO himself. Listen now!
Incorporating elements of R&B, dance and pop with a punk spirit, Canada’s HERO has no genre. Describing his approach as “putting familiar sounds through a VHS player,” HERO’s debut Dirty Work EP on Fool’s Gold features six self-produced tracks exploring the underbelly of romance over a darkly catchy, electronic pulse. From the title track (with its striking music video, filmed in Oslo with director Johannes Greve Muskat) to slow jam “Stay the Night,” Dirty Work might be FG’s most cinematic release to date, and the sound of an auspicious new artist merging his influences into one singular vision.
“Stay the Night” is a moody, disco-tinged taste of HERO’s cinematic Dirty Work (out 1/10), following the EP’s lead single and title track, “Dirty Work” (and its brooding, Lynch-ian companion video).
