LOS ANGELES, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Starting with nudie-cutie footage from the 1950s, the music video to “Explosive Chill” by Jonny Harmonic proceeds to travel the world both literally and figuratively. “Vacation destinations, pyrotechnics, ancient statues, and modern dildos are all in the video,” states John Scott G of Golosio Publishing, the record label and music publishing company behind Harmonic’s “We All Love Bright Shiny Things” album.
Produced by the FookMovie Collective, the purpose of the video is to show how the groove-oriented dance music can be a soundtrack to a wide variety of visual material.
The wide variety of imagery perfectly suits the eerie and pulsating music on “We All Love Bright Shiny Things.” Each of the album’s dozen tracks had its start in various locations, including “nightclubs, sexual conquests, drug trips, supernatural manifestations, slow-motion footage, girls in short skirts, and/or special effects,” G stated.
“These 12 songs began in a brightly-colored place full of movement and strange other-worldly creatures,” G noted. “From there, Jonny took them into a kind of ethereal plane involving rock, goth, dance, hearts-of-space, and groove,” G added.
Golosio is welcoming suggestions on the best way to categorize the sounds on the Jonny Harmonic album. “There were a lot of ideas from musicians in the studio,” says G, “including terms such as ambient bop, dark-groove, and industrial-lounge, but most of us like the term Explosive Chill, which also happens to be one of the song titles.”

In either case, Jonny is not posing for publicity photos and not giving in-person interviews. When asked for a bio, he wrote: “Mr. Harmonic has no comment on rumors linking him to Shania Twain and George Chuvalo.”
