This Is Our Jam Premieres: Nite Jewel "Memory, Man" (Video)

nite-jewel
Nite Jewel (a.k.a. L.A-based pop artist Ramona Gonzalez) makes '80s-tinged tunes tailored to the the sleepy state between dreams and reality. Her new video for "Memory, Man," is an assortment of surreal imagery ranging from a face-painted Gonzalez to a foggy abandoned factory. Let's just say that David Lynch would be proud.
Director Angus Borsos had this to say about the video:
"Hypnotized by a blue sky – dark blue started to drip down my spine and I started to dream things up behind the front of my eyes. Leading up to working with Ramona, I felt that most of the images I was being exposed to were lacking an undercurrent – that I was lacking an undercurrent, that images were being carefully placed as opposed to being carefully grown. Tunnelling with the song, I started to see the video as a trunk of rich still-life paintings. Ramona as a living statue on a stage, looking through the many dimensions of her memory, no, reality. I hoped that it would read like a timeless old book of her past (or yours) that she (or you) can't quite place – but somehow managed to record in startlingly high resolution – proof that it's there (for now), and that memory is camouflage."
Heavy. Check out the "Memory, Man" premiere below, along with upcoming Nite Jewel tour dates:
