Jared Putnam’s mostly one-man project The March Divide is premiering its brand new music video “Overexposure” today here at I’m Music Magazine. It’s second video from Anticipation Pops, the upcoming new album by The March Divide. It’s the second in an animated trilogy of clips.
“The ‘Overexposure’ video is the second part in a trilogy of animated videos for songs from my new album Anticipation Pops (Slow Start Records, Aug. 24th.) You can see the first one, for ‘I Don’t Care,’ here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmgwUeL-NqQ. Made by Harold Loeffler-Bell, the story of the video really fits the narrative of the song, which in a nutshell, is the two perspectives of holding on and letting go. Harry really has a way of communicating my songs, in a simple and completely accurate way. It’s funny where inspiration can come from, sometimes. I wrote ‘Overexposure’ for what was supposed to be a quick, very 90’s rock drenched project, that didn’t come to fruition. I couldn’t let go of the song, but didn’t know how to make it anything but all out grunge, until the last Beck album ‘Colors’ came out. I got really hooked on that album for a while, and it somehow helped me re-evaluate this song, with fresh ears and ideas.” – Jared Putnam, The March Divide
Over the course of three “impressively hooky” (American Songwriter) albums, five “completely clever” (Performer Magazine) EPs, numerous singles, and a batch of cover songs in a mere half-decade, Putnam’s mostly one-man project The March Divide has delivered a seemingly unending stream of songs that have established the San Antonio-based artist as one of the best rock songwriters working today. Putnam’s upcoming fourth The March Divide album is Anticipation Pops (Aug. 24th, Slow Start Records) and is his best work to date, mostly because the ten songs here reveal a greater emotional depth, along with performances, and lyrics, that go beyond anything that Putnam has offered up before. Perhaps his near-manic recording and touring schedule was prologue that has led to the relatable sensitivity that is this album.
