Aron D'Alesio Run & Show # 561

A video for the song “Run” by Aron D’Alesio was recently released online in part to promote his upcoming four-track cassette release. D'Alesio is perhaps known for being a member of the Hamilton garage rock band Young Rival, but this song is part of his a new solo release. The video for “Run” was made entirely of clips from the website and is the second in a series of videos that will be made for each of the songs on this four-track release. The vintage clips that compose this song’s video are made up of archive clips from the 1968 sci-fi film Voyage To The Planet Of Prehistoric Cavewomen. Produced by Roger Corman and directed by Peter Bogdanovich (under the name Derek Thomas), the film tells the tale of astronauts that encounter prehistoric monsters and beautiful women when their spaceship crashes on Venus. The music seeps into the oversaturated retro images with its hazy psychedelic sounds, featuring surf rock influenced guitar stabs and extremely catchy melodies. Mixed in amongst primal drums and bass, “Run” fits in perfectly with the video’s atmosphere, as it’s beautiful melodies fight against the psychedelic haze on this three and a half minute music journey.
