Video Premiere: “Got Me All Wrong” by KillerStar

10 January 2024

UK musicians Rob Fleming and James Sedge’s new band KillerStar weaves modernist touches into the classic harmonies and exemplary musicianship of classic rock and art-rock from the ‘70s. And they’ve joined forces team of musicians known for their work with David Bowie: Mike Garson on piano, Earl Slick and Mark Plati on guitar, Gail Ann Dorsey and Tim Lefebvre on bass, Emm Gryner on backing vocals, and Donny McCaslin on saxophone. KillerStar take another step towards the March 1 release of their self-titled debut album by sharing the video for their third single “Got Me All Wrong.”

KillerStar’s Rob Fleming says (EXCLUSIVE QUOTES):
“The song has a groove and high energy reflective of the lyrics and playful joy of the tune. James and I are joined by ex-David Bowie longtime bandmates and collaborators Earl Slick on guitar, Gail Ann Dorsey on bass, Mike Garson on piano, and Emm Gryner on backing vocals. It was fantastic to have them come together again and work on this new music with us and throughout the whole album. The song ends with something of a musical tour de force of angular crunchy guitar riffs and a virtuoso signature piano solo from Mike.”

Quote from JJ Eringa, Video Director, about the video (EXCLUSIVE QUOTES):
“What I loved most about the song is its brilliant contrast of angular guitars with swirling sequences that are really quite hypnotic. This video uses sequences from Dada films by Hans Richter, Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray, which I love because this video is an opportunity to do a variation on what they were doing back then, recontextualizing materials for a new purpose and (hopefully) giving them new life!

This is all built around a brilliant central performance from actress Sophie Allen, who captured the exact balance of playfulness and undeniable cool that I was looking for, and which I think is present in the song too.”
