The New Division Premieres New Music Video for “Jealous”
- Los Angeles-based electronic producer John Glenn Kunkel, aka The New Division has dropped a new music video for “Jealous” directed by Brad Bischoff.
The song is included on his sixth EP “Fader”, which was released last May. The track is '80s British pop sound like Tears For Fears and Dead or Alive.
John Glenn Kunkel said of the video, ”Extremely excited to announce the premiere of The New Division's latest music video, "Jealous," directed by Bradley Bischoff. There's a lot going on in this video and it was a lot of fun to shoot, but I think Brad's words and vision for it explain it best.
I'll leave you with his words shortly, but I just wanted to thank him, & the rest of the Club Paradise crew who made this video come to life. I could have not envisioned a more fitting set of imagery to go along with this song.”
- He continued, “After hearing “Shadows” on Pandora, Brad reached out to John via e-mail back in 2016. The two began a correspondence, and eventually, the right idea with the right track came to fruition on “Jealous.” Inspired by the photography of Gregory Crewdson & Philip-Lorca diCorcia, vintage Ventura, and life in the suburbs... “Jealous” portraits the falling apart of a man in the aftermath of a relationship. Often times one can feel stuck in rumination, which carries with it a very lonely, isolated side effect.
The film balances two approaches: the static study of isolation contrasted with a dizzying handheld series of intimacy. By all means, the character in the film is stuck by his own doing, with the drinking throughout serving as a metaphor of escapism. Until a change arises, he will remain in limbo. At times this depression can feel like a “performance,” as well, which is why we wanted to give him a microphone throughout. We decided to end on a string of hope, beachside on the Ocean as he puts the microphone down at last... perhaps a change on the horizon. The film was lensed by local DP Taylor Russ and was produced by Brad Bischoff & Alex Hidalgo of Club Paradise, LLC."”
