New Dawn Fades video (Joy Division cover)

Joy Division is one of my favorite band.

I was recording a new track and noticed that the chords progression, even though slower, darker & kinda far-fetched, had similarities to "New Dawn Fades". Every time I would work on my track, I couldn't get the original one out of my head. So I gave up and went ahead to record a cover instead, embracing the essence of its mood --- doom-gaze style!

I impulsively decided to make a video for it, shot in NYC:

I also fell on Moby & Dave Navarro's cover, who managed to completely butcher the song. So this is kind of a response to it as well... although I'll probably get bashed on Youtube like everybody else.
