Canadian post punk band Port Juvee have shared their new single Double Vision, which is lifted from forthcoming album ‘CRIMEWAVE’ (out November 4th, 2016). Take a listen via Soundcloud below.
Port Juvee hail from the plains of Canada, and have played a load of festivals including CMJ, Sled Island X-Fest and Rifflandia. They have also supported DIIV, Titus Andronicus, Twin Peaks, Sticky Fingers, Bleachers and The Orwells on tour.
The band’s hometown is Calgary. An isolated city that thrives on extremes, the huge vacant buildings downtown take on an eerie feeling after dark and inhabit a post-apocalyptic vibe. This, combined with the band’s obsession with gritty 80’s films in the vein of John Carpenter and David Cronenberg, are the essence and source of inspiration for their energetic post punk sound.
Written and recorded in Calgary during a transformative time for the band, ‘CRIMEWAVE’ is Port Juvee’s third studio release. Produced by the band with help from Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend ‘Contra’), ‘CRIMEWAVE’ moves seamlessly through the lackadaisical punk of Bleached Out Soda Pop, Trapped Under Water‘s pounding garage rhythms and the 80’s-inspired escapism of the title track.
Double Vision is not only the title of Port Juvee’s new single but also the name of their 10% ABV beer, created in partnership with Calgary’s Big Rock Brewery.
‘CRIMEWAVE’ will be available via independent release on November 4th, 2016.
