Today, pop fans around the globe can find here at The Big Takeover the exclusive worldwide premiere of the brand new music video for the song “LaLaLa” from singer-songwriter Marty Casey. The fantastical and fun time-travelling music video pays homage to several musical giants through the decades.
Of the video, Marty Casey comments, ““LaLaLa” is complete pop bliss and we thought the song was worthy of an over-the-top video! We kick it off in epic fashion with a bonafide time travel guitar that teleports me through decades of music. This video gives a nod to several amazing songwriters whose images are as profound as their songs. They are the soundtrack of cool and we loved portraying them in Back to the Future fashion with this catchy tune.”
“LaLaLa” is taken from Marty Casey’s forthcoming album, THE GROUND YOU WALK ON, due out on May 26th. To pre-order the album via iTunes, please click here.

Marty Casey graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Finance. He began working in real estate while also recording and touring with his band the Lovehammers, which he formed as a teenager. The Lovehammers’ fanbase grew steadily and several recordings quickly followed. The band’s second EP, HOW WE LIVE, was produced by the legendary Steve Albini (Nirvana, PJ Harvey, The Pixies).
The Lovehammers DVD, LIVE/RAW debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Musical DVD chart, while their album SET FIRE, cracked the Top 15 of both the Billboard New Artist and Heatseekers charts, at #13, respectively, and was also the #1 Midwest Heatseekers Regional entry at Billboard. Of a Lovehammers album, The Washington Post declared it a “well-polished hard rock collection”. The Lovehammers have toured with the likes of such critically-acclaimed artists as Cake and Gomez.
In 2006, Casey was asked to join the show Rock Star: INXS, where he quickly became a fan favorite, achieving international fame on the hit reality show. It was his performance of his own song “Trees” that became an instant hit debuting as a #1 download. Even though Marty placed runner-up in the competition, Marty Casey & Lovehammers were immediately offered a contract with Epic Records, as well as a spot as the opening band for INXS’ Switched On tour.
Through the Rockstar: INXS TV show experience, Casey met Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue) and they began writing songs. Marti continued mentoring Casey and helped him develop his own songwriting style. In 2015 the pair commenced work on what would become THE GROUND YOU WALK ON.
