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.

Canadian post-punk outfit Port Juvee has released a new music video for their track “Double Vision.” Check out the retro spaced-aged nostalgia here:
The quintet band said about the video’s art direction, “There’s a somber, almost haunting feel to the focus and intensity of the astronauts as they slowly go through the paces, preparing to be shot into space… which matches up nicely to the effects used throughout the song, as well as the concepts lyrically.”
The garage rock band is premiering this song in anticipation for its upcoming album “CRIMEWAVE” to be released Nov. 4 on digital, CD and cassette formats. The album is a collection of seven songs produced by the band with the help from Justin Gerrish who worked on Vampire Weekend’s “Contra.” “CRIMEWAVE” is Port Juvee’s third studio release and moves between lackadaisical punk to garage rhythms and to 80’s-inspired escapism.
Be sure to check out “CRIMEWAVE” when it comes out Nov. 4.
Port Juvee is currently on tour in Canada. Check them out in Toronto @ The Opera House on Oct. 20 and Montreal @ Club Soda Oct. 21. They have supported DIIV, Titus Andronicus, Twin Peaks, Sticky Fingers, Bleachers and The Orwells, and played a multitude of festivals including CMJ, Sled Island X-Fest and Rifflandia.
