Los Angeles-based Johnathan Mooney and Stockholm’s Christian Granquist otherwise known as the Trans-Atlantic post-punk project, Johnathan|Christian have released their latest EP, Strip Me.
The EP tells a story through a trilogy of songs, "Strip Me,” "Sway Back" and "This Too". The topics addressed in the trilogy include acknowledging the fear of rejection, love's often finite nature, hitting bottom and trying to find ways out.
The EP also features remixes by Ministry's John Bechdel, EBM legend Leæther Strip, and Steven Archer (Stone Burner/Ego Likeness), which provide unique interpretations of the duo's sound.
Strip Me is available on all major digital platforms, including their Bandcamp page. www.jchristianmusic.com
The music video for "Strip Me”, produced by Purple Tree Creative's Nick Van Dyk, takes a subliminal approach in terms of the cuts and imagery addressing the challenges of a relationship.
The animated video aims to explore the different emotions and experiences that come with the life cycle of a relationship in a unique and visually striking way. By using abstract imagery, the video aims to create a powerful and thought-provoking response that can help those going through challenges to understand better and process their feelings, even if it may be on a subconscious level. The video's goal is to convey empathy and the chaos that comes with the experience of a relationship.
