Today, Starcrawler debut their video for ‘Hollywood Ending’ directed by Gilbert Trejo. The visual is a love letter to their hometown and marks what will surely be another epic year for them filled with more new music and touring, carrying their envelope pushing vision into the mainstream. Watch below!
Director Gilbert Trejo says of the video: “Arrow and I almost started sowing the seeds for this video when we first met…one of the first things we bonded over was our shared love for old Hollywood… The Hollywood we both got dragged around felt magical at a young age… When we got the go ahead to make the Hollywood Ending video, we knew exactly what type of imagery we wanted to convey. We got to bring our own favourite disappearing neighbourhood back to life.”
Lead singer Arrow de Wilde says “This song to me shows a loss of innocence and the dramatic yet sometimes bitter ‘Hollywood Ending’ to a first love. Everyone has to go through different Hollywood endings in their own lives, whether they’re good or bad. Sometimes it’s the Wizard Of Oz and you wake up from a crazy nightmare dream and you’re fine, or sometimes it’s Carnival of Souls where you’ve been dead all along.”
‘Hollywood Ending’ was produced by Ryan Adams and mixed by Nick Launay. It illustrates how much the band has grown in the last year, transitioning from the scuzzy garage rock of their first record into a truly unique vision of rock & roll music as envisioned by a new generation of youth.
