September 5, 2018 – Halo Circus continue their rise in the music industry with the release of a new music video for their latest single, Oh, Money! The track comes from their 2018 release ‘Robots and Wranglers‘. The album features many songs that are relevant about the ills of today’s society wrapped in a synth-pop sound.
The album’s lead song, Oh, Money! takes on the issue of money ruining our lives, whether we have it or not. The video is fun and quirky showing how spending money can make people happy (if maybe just for a fleeting moment), as you see recurring scenes of people using credit cards to buy what one can only assume are trivial items.
“We wrote the songs on the record around 2018. Every song tells a different story about what is mutating in our ever changing, ever manipulated society. With love, Oh, Money! is just one of a million things that we are wrestling with inside our own little bubble while there are some deeply concerning things going on all over the world.” says Allison.
It’s nice to have messages like this in pop music today. Too many songs actually reflect just the opposite – showing stacks of cash strewn about, preaching an unsustainable lifestyle. “They say money is the root of all evil. We say money is the fruit of our ego. It’s a lie, it’s a lie, it’s a lie, it’s all lies…” as Allison preaches the dangers of such a lifestyle.

Halo Circus finished up a US tour earlier in the year, but do have some individual dates listed on their events page HERE. We were able to catch up with Allison and Matthew during that tour as they passed through Cleveland, Ohio.
