Brooklyn, NY synth pop/lo-fi band Johnny Dynamite & the Bloodsuckers have aired the video for their newest single “Feeding the Nite“.
Dynamite describes the new record as “a satirical antithesis to a fantasy yarn.” “The story is told through the distorted lens of Tommy, who is a broke, salty, New York underdog- type that thinks the American Dream of a musician lies in Nashville, TN,” Dynamite explains. “He leaves NYC for Nashville, and along the way he meets his soulmate, referred to as Valentine. Valentine, a saint-like vagabond, then joins him in his travels to the outskirts of Nashville, where they sublease a lake house.
Of the new single, he says: “Feeding the Nite is a song about losing sight of right and wrong when put in a bad situation. You choose the wrong path and subsequently are feeding the nite with your own horrors and drama.”

Johnny Dynamite is the solo alias of synth-centric singer/songwriter and producer John Morisi, though at times Dynamite is joined by his band “The Bloodsuckers”. Inspired by the illustrative work of his grandfather, acclaimed comic book artist, and Brooklyn native Pete Morisi, Dynamite took on the name of one of his most iconic characters, an anti-hero detective from the underworld; “Johnny Dynamite”.
