The New Division has a unique talent for bringing the sounds of some of the best alternative musicians from the 20th Century into a modern context. Make no mistake though... this is NOT a cover or tribute band. All the songs are fresh, original and superbly constructed. One of my very favorite artists.
Favorite track: Vicious.
The New Division is the alias of Los Angeles based electronic Musician/Producer John Glenn Kunkel. With 3 albums and 4 EP's as well as numerous remixes and productions featuring on his impressive and extensive resume, Kunkel starts 2017 with The New Division’s most euphoric and synth-heavy record yet: PRECISION.
Featuring six analog driven tracks, Kunkel describes his latest work as, “An homage to neon-tinted dystopian cityscapes,” drawing inspiration from synth-laden neo-retro pop, Moroder melodics, vintage-inspired electronica, and cinematic sensibilities to create something wholly unique that is referential yet inherently forward thinking.
