“Haunted by the Night” Jagged Baptist Club

Jagged Baptist Club have shared a video for “Haunted by the Night,” the track is off their forthcoming release Temptation Death House, produced by the band and Joseph Calleiro, the full-length drops October 29, via Gauzy Records. The Los Angeles quartet includes Blake Stokes, Morgan Ponder, Josh Boyd and CJ Ramsey. last February 2021, the band shared the single and title-track and was heavily featured on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” and championed by influential DJ Jose Galvan.

This video for “Haunted by the Night” started with a simple idea, “a wolfman makes dinner alone in his kitchen”. The idea eventually evolved from a real time, art house, troll move to something pretty sweet and even a bit touching. The video is about loneliness and isolation and the need for connection with others. You won’t believe me, but lockdown and Covid themes never came up when we were writing the idea! We just ended up wanting to tell the story of two different creatures becoming homies and bonding over the universal uniter that is a shitty pepperoni pizza. The video was directed, shot, and edited by Styles Wolff Baker, with Color grading by Danny Valentine.

““Haunted by the Night” is built around a menacing drum and bass groove that recalls Bauhaus or Public Image Limited at their most paranoid. The anxiety builds throughout the song as each new layer is added until it climaxes with a chorus that sounds like the Summer of Love soaked in acid rather than high on it. The lyrics cover my time growing up in Houston, Texas but in the form of fever dream impressions and hallucinations, rather than literal biography. “Haunted by the Night” is crawling with unease and dread, and you can dance to it.”
