Grammy nominated J. Views releases the seductive new video for the song “Don’t Pull Away
Jonathan Dagan, known as J. Views builds poetry within his electronic pallette of white-washed dissonance. “Don’t Pull Away” engulfs us with an electronic tune that is equally entrancing as it is heartbreaking.
The video, featuring transgender model and actress Indya Moore and model Elliot Sailors, accentuates the emotion of this song in an amazing and crisp way. The clarity and simplicity involved is all we need.
Director Tamar Glezerman had this to say about the video. “I feel motivated to proudly celebrate women, women of color and LGBTQ people” said Glezerman “To try and reflect different people with all kinds of stories. Stories that just got a lot more urgent to listen to”
The song expresses a subtlety that is torn apart at the fragments. This anti dance-floor ambiance offers a pulse that sends butterflies down your body. There could be so much warmth in this environment. Both Glezerman and Dagan do a mystifying job at keeping us staring at the screen, all the way to the kiss. A last gasp. A transcendental cliff dive. A fleeting moment. “Don’t Pull Away” is more human then you can expect.
The song was written by both Rhye’s frontman Mike Milosh, who also provides the vocals and Gotye. J.Views will also release the deluxe edition of ‘401 Days’ entitled ‘402’ on June 16.
