TVD NSFW Video Premiere: Smoota, “Ballbuster”

“This song is emblematic of one of the cores of my philosophy: we should celebrate all kinds of loving relationships, no matter how outside of the mainstream.”Smoota

According to the encyclopedia Encyclopedia Britannica, a ballbuster is: 1. a woman who is rough on a man and, 2. something that causes ejaculation. Blue-eyed soul man Smoota checks off both categories in his newest NSFW video.

The steamy visuals marry the 1960s New Wave European films from France, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia with the 1960s and ’70s American sexploitation movement. Like these films, “Ballbuster” feels tender and intimate, composed of Smoota and his pregnant dominatrix engaging in some sweet and often questionable bedroom endeavors to the tune of his ultra-smooth brand of R&B.

The song itself gushes with sensuality, and like video, positions itself in the sweet spot between authenticity and self-effacement.

Its slinky groove and Bee Gee-esque falsetto musings are executed with an impressive amount of conviction and grace, and the resulting song/video portrays S&M in a softer light, avoiding punchlines or extremes in favor of a sweeter more personable approach.

Smoota’s Pheromones LP arrives in stores on November 2 via Body to Body Records with a release show at Union Pool on the same date.
