Just in time to save us from the winter chill, Port Juvee has shared their new music video for Bleached Out Soda Pop. The beachy video paired with Port Juvee’s sunny garage rock-inspired sound is the perfect antidote for the winter blues. Watch it below via YouTube.
Port Juvee have played a multitude 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 also slipped into the global spotlight in 2014 when tracks from their ‘Revenge’ EP were featured in Herschel Supply Company’s Spring ad campaign.
Although Port Juvee embody a sound that is equally indebted to New York City post-punk and California surf garage, the band’s stomping grounds are in 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 and their most dizzying assortment yet. 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 Underwater‘s pounding garage rhythms and the 80’s-inspired escapism of the title track.
The video’s release coincides with the release of ‘CRIMEWAVE,’ which is available now.
