‘Self Control’ continues the momentum of a triumphant year for the duo.
Their single ‘Cause This’ received airplay on over 70 dance music stations with appearances on various compilations & their risqué music video ‘Friends with Benefits’ went viral on YouTube and other websites.
Naked Highway ups the NSFW ante for Self Control’ by shooting it in an actual NYC sex club with a guest appearances by adult film star Aleks Buldocek (Raging Stallion), NYC shock rocker Alexcalibur & more! Directed by Peter Cimino and band members Sy Boccari & David Lee Rotten, the video pays homage to the original 80’s music video with hints of Madonna’s ‘Erotica’ for good measure!
Singer Sy Boccari says, “’Self Control’ is one of my all-time favorites!
My parents used to play it all the time when I was a kid, and since Halloween was my favorite holiday I originally thought the song was about Halloween, since she sung about “the creatures of the night.” How naïve of me! Deep in my heart I knew even then that I would one day sing this song on stage, and look at me now Ma!”
Naked Highway’s unique fusion of Dance/Electronica and New Wave has also created a demand for remix work from RuPaul’s Drag Race alums Manila Luzon, Latrice Royale, Jinx Monsoon & Willam, as well as major label acts such as The Presets (‘If I Know You’) and INXS (‘Mediate’ feat. Tricky), the latter a Billboard Top 20 Dance Chart entry.
As a live act, Naked Highway has performed at Sonar Festival (Barcelona), CMJ (NYC), North By Northeast (Toronto), Miami Winter Music Conference, as well as on tours across the North America and Europe.
