post-punk rockers Port Juvee, recently share their new video for “Trapped Underwater,” the second single from CRIMEWAVE (November 4th). The clipideo is a montage of carnival images and the band on stage, all dipped in a vintage filter.
Port Juvee Have played a multitude of festivals including CMJ, Sled Island X-Fest and Rifflandia, the band has also supported DIIV, Titus Andronicus, Twin Peaks, and The Orwells on tour.
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. 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.
