Exclusive Video Premiere: Hardcore Sex “Shake Your Boogie”

2017 has been a goddamn wonderful year for music videos that encourage the open oggling of a variety of boys. Last month, Charli XCX took that trend global in a major way with the fittingly titled “Boys” but Austin artists were ahead of the curve here, ranging from Kady Rain’s R.A.D. Moves” to Sweet Spirit’s Babydoll.” And now sleazy blues rock duo Hardcore Sex are getting in on the action with “Shake Your Boogie,” an Angela Herr and Hannah Varnell-directed boy buffet that adds some cabaret flavor to the mix via its Spider House Ballroom scenery and French emcee hosting a deliciously kooky burlesque show. And it’s not just flesh that’s on display as the only vice, there’s some creative consumption of burgers and pizza and beer. Although it might be hard to even notice that, what with the rough making out, glittery underwear, bunny suits, unorthodox use of the Spider House bathrooms and so on. Point being, no matter where your tastes lie, “Shake Your Boogie” is bound to offer at least a glimpse of it, with a wink and a nod instead of a judging frown. So lock your office door, close the blinds and take a peek at the video, then be sure to “Shake Your Boogie” in person when Hardcore Sex plays Hole in the Wall tonight for their tour kickoff.
