New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Today, Ron Gallo shares the music video for his single,"Love Supreme (Work Together!)," off his latest album, Stardust
Birthday Party out now on New West. The video is set to the Claudius Mittendorfer (Weezer, Parquet Courts, We Are Scientists) mix of the song and was directed by Joshua Shoemaker. "This video is a total mind f, and I really love the colors," says Gallo. "The level of genius and work it took Joshua and his partner Albert to conceptualize it and build the world it takes place in from zero, and then find a way to shoot it all in one shot is beyond me. Iwas just happy to be apart of it. Shoemaker told me he was in a long bout of depression and making this video pulled him out of it and that's really what the song is all about - making people happy and helping each other out as humans".
Birthday Party is the follow up to Ron Gallo's debut album, Heavy
Meta, a "garage rock album whose emphasis on lurid fun doesn't sacrifice depth," said The Guardian, giving it four stars. Mojo called it a "Shrieky-voiced, Jad fair-esque solo set of mid-70s Bowery oddball punk." "His infectious yawp and party-starting rhythms exude an authentic, urgent sense of exuberance," said Consequence of Sound.
