John June Year are a lot like their music video for "Hollywood" they're premiering on Sound in the Static today. It begins somewhere in a two-dimensional world, or an impossibly foggy concert where only silhouettes are discernable. It's sophisticated and cool, but you're just dying to know who's behind the screen.

But good pop. If you took a step back from TV On The Radio towards the Red Hot Chili Peppers, that's about where John June Year stand in the musical spectrum.
Directed by Bruce James Bales and produced by Greg Heysinger, Jason Reed and Bruce James Bales, the video comes after the release of their Pop Sucker EP released in December.
