“The ‘Spaceman’ music video tells kind of a psychedelic space-age version of ‘Romeo and Juliet,’” Richards explains. “It’s both futuristic and vintage all at once.
This video is hugely inspired by my deep fascination with mid-century sci-fi films and books. We shot outside of Marfa, TX, a place I’ve always wanted to check out. I asked the hotel attendant there what she thought about those mysterious ‘Marfa Lights’. She has lived there her whole life and has seen them multiple times and she’s convinced that they are aliens. My favorite part of the video is the trombone solo. So perfectly stupid. I also like the role reversal, I play the clumsy damsel in distress who needs to be rescued by a heroine.”
Ty Richards is causing a commotion in the States & Europe. Fans call him “Beck Zeppelin.” As an emerging artist in an ocean of droning garage rock and autotuned hipster pop, Ty Richards sticks out like a sore thumb with his danceable grooves and supernostalgic psychedelic hooks.
In late 2015 his debut single “Shoulda Coulda Woulda” even sparked attention across the pond. In a recent interview, Paul Heath of Radio X in Europe referred to Richards as an “allAmerican musical genius.” Like many of the greats, from Prince and Stevie Wonder all the way to Foo Fighters and Tame Impala, Ty Richards also writes, performs, records, produces and even mixes his records. Richards has spent the last year molding this highly anticipated album that is paving the way for a lifetime of records that will stand as true art that is here to stay.
