Bergman will be sharing the video for “All We Are”(10/11/2019) in
collaboration with award-winning director Rupert Höller. Höller
received the coveted title of Best Pop Video – Newcomer at the UK Music
Video Awards 2018, directing Leyya’s “Wannabe” video.
The single, which premiered on Clash Magazine is lifted from his EP New Horizon which will be released via Bergman Music.
by Niko Stoessl (Dave Gahan, IamX, NIHILS, Motoboy) and composed by Ro
Bergman and Niko Stoessl, it follows on from his previous releases
“Clouds”, the video for which premiered on The 405, and “Horizon” with
accompanying video. He has seen support from Elicit Magazine, XS Noize,
VH1, MTV, and has racked up nearly 50 000 Spotify streams, over 41 000
Youtube views, with his track “Best Time” (dedicated to Austrian Skistar
Marcel Hirscher) racking up 60 000 downloads in Austria alone, and
becoming the Austrian equivalent of a platinum record.
Born in Austria, Bergman’s family encouraged him to become involved in
music, and he played in a high school band as a teen. His travels have
influenced his music greatly, and his sound carries pieces of the
diverse cultures he has experienced. However, the pull towards his
native Austria always brings him home to write, compose and record.
Bergman’s unique blend of indie-rock draws inspiration from acts such as
Beck, Bon Iver, Fink, The National and The Verve, but his sound pays
homage to these artists without emulating them. His charm lies in his
ability to create a sound familiar yet totally unique, drawing parallels
to Tame Impala, Foals, Local Natives and Chet Faker.
video explores themes of the everchanging cycles of life and death. The
video is a thought-provoking look into this concept and Bergman invites
the viewer to explore the emotions of discomfort that all too often
accompany these circumstances – a true expression of feeling to learn
from rather than deny. If it is true that art should disturb the
comfortable and comfort the disturbed, then Bergman and Hoeller have
done their job as artists well.
Director Rupert Höller shares his thoughts: “A long night drive exploring the beauty and sadness of life and death.”
Ro Bergman gives some insight:
“We shot the video during dusk and dawn in St Johann, Pongau. The very
early mornings especially had a certain magic. Local people supported us
with big enthusiasm. It was directed by music video award-winning
Rupert Höller in the area where his grandparents live. Be aware of how
precious life is.”
