Gregory Rogove shares HOOOPS' debut (semi-NSFW) video


Gregory Rogove (of Devendra Banhart's band + Priestbird, Tarantula AD, etc) has shared a video for "Against The Wall," the debut single by his new project HOOOPS. The video stars dancer Diana Garcia performing highly conceptual (semi-NSFW) choreography set against Rogove's dark melodies and polyrhythmic psychedelia.

The song is from the debut HOOOPS EP, recorded with producer Paul Butler (The Bees, Micheal Kiwanuka, Devendra Banhart). It will be released in September, 2016 and is now available for pre-order via pledgemusic.com/HOOOPS


Says Rogove of the clip: "The video deals with obstacles and the unwavering attempts at overcoming them. It begins with a birth and the consequential lack of coordination and physical control. Eventually, standing upright is possible, as is the shedding of early, naive skin. Regardless of this development, there are environmental obstructions and imaginary walls that restrict free movement. Finally, after pushing through, graceful dance and ecstatic movement become possible."



UPCOMING SHOWS:
July 28th @ Moustache - Tijuana, Mexico 
July 29th @ The Satellite - Los Angeles, CA
