Port Juvee have released a new music video for “CRIMEWAVE,” the title track of the band’s album that came out last year. Experience the new wave, punk rock sounds and visuals here:
All the live footage in the video was shot in the band’s little concrete jamspace in Calgary that is covered with graffiti and happens to be the place where they recorded the “CRIMEWAVE” album.
“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,” said vocalist Brett Sandford. “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.”
The EP was produced by the band with the help of Justin Gerrish, who worked on Vampire Weekend’s “Contra.” The album goes through a series of punk and 80s-inspired rhythms that are sure to be a nice throwback for anyone from the era and a nice flashback for those who came after.
The band has been headlining major festivals including CMJ, Sled Island X-Fest and Rifflandia, and have also supported DIIV, Titus Andronicus, Twin Peaks, Sticky Fingers, Bleachers and The Orwells on tour.
