With glowing reviews for his britpop-inspired solo debut album Hesitant Alien, Gerard Way has just released the music video for ‘Millions‘.
“I wanted to make the small things sound big,” explains Gerard, while talking about the direction he took on Hesitant Alien. “My intention was to make 100 percent uncompromised art, using the currently least radio-friendly instrument, the guitar. I knew there would be lots of fuzz pedals. I knew I would play Fender instruments. I knew I would look at who my guitar heroes were in art school, Mary Timony and Carrie Brownstein, and I drew a lot of influence from shoe-gaze and Britpop. I want the record to sonically galvanize people.”
