The New Division is the musical brainchild of Los Angeles based electronic musician/producer John Glenn Kunkel. His music is inspired by New Wave and synthpop, but with an ear for modern sounds and lyrical subject matter as on new song Jealous.
Featured on his recent Fader EP, the song is a perfect distillation of his finely-honed take on rock infused electronica. His vocals are on point as ever, lending the already heartfelt lyrics a sheen of emotion and meaning as they reflect on loss and longing.
The arrangement serves up a moody confection of driving synths and soaring guitars, giving the song a subtly anthemic quality to reinforce the emotional message and the pain that lies within the lyrics.
