Published May 12, 2015We have plenty of responsibilities here at Exclaim!, like warning readers not to try the kinds of blade-licking antics a group of young S&M devotees are getting up to in the new, lustily blood-dripping video for Vancouver outfit Actors' recent "Let It Grow." You can, however, watch the video to your danger-loving heart's delight down below.
The track thrives on the kind of new wave flavour that's driven Actors in the past, with iceberg cold sine waves and polar cap clacks supporting frontman Jason Corbett's sassily hushed lines about secret sex lives. We, however, are getting a pretty intimate look at a few one-on-one rubdowns that involve leather gloves, scratched skin, vampiric tendencies and a lot of soulful staring.
We're hoping that's crimson-coloured corn syrup getting stuck in moustaches and manes, otherwise we may just be watching the world's most danceable snuff film.
