Port Juvee have released their new music video for the title track of their recently released album ‘CRIMEWAVE’. Watch the video clip via YouTube below.
Vocalist Brett Sandford said of the video, “We wanted to combine some of the inspiration we found in the kitsch of old public access television style telethons with some nods to the underground radio scenes of The Warriors. The entire record was made in a chaotic time in our lives, and the track is about finding opportunities for change in those crazy times where you think everything’s gone wrong. All the live footage was shot in our jamspace, this little concrete room in Calgary that’s covered with graffiti, which is also where we recorded the CRIMEWAVE EP.”
Port Juvee have played a load of festivals including CMJ, Sled Island X-Fest and Rifflandia, the fivesome has also supported DIIV, Titus Andronicus, Twin Peaks, Sticky Fingers, Bleachers and The Orwells on tour. The band slipped into the global spotlight in 2014 when tracks from their ‘Revenge’ EP were featured in Herschel Supply Company’s Spring ad campaign.
Produced by the band with help from Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend ‘Contra’), their third studio album ‘CRIMEWAVE’ moves seamlessly through the lackadaisical punk of Bleached Out Soda Pop, Trapped Underwater‘s pounding garage rhythms and the 80’s-inspired escapism of the title track.
