Diego Solórzano, Andrés Velasco, Rodrigo Blanco, and Miguel Hernández are Mexican rockers, Rey Pila, that rocked last night at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, New York as they opened up for one of the biggest bands of the last two decades, The Strokes, for their Governors Ball warm-up show.
The pairing was just too perfect as they’re keeping it in the Cult fam, Strokes/Voidz frontman and Cult founder Julian Casablancas signed Rey Pila since he loved their sound so much and as they say… The rest is history, ever since the Mexican protégés, Rey Pila, have been keeping busy ever since touring with the likes of Interpol and Brandon Flowers.
Last year they released their album, The Future Sugar, and of those tracks is Surveillance Camera which is released today. The video is directed by master cinematographer Warren Fu and is centered around Diego Solórzano playing the role of an obsessive stage five clinger/stalker. The cinematography is beautiful and sleek in black and white paired with flashing graphics. It’s creepy but not as say, Rockwell’s Somebody’s Watching Me. The video is catchy and hypnotic which is exactly like the video, you can’t take your eyes off of it.
