“Hope To Lose” Port Juvee

Port Juvee have released a new video for their current single “Hope to Lose,” the clip features found footage and images of the band shot on lo-fi video format. The track is off the Calgary band’s forthcoming release Motion Control, out February 28th via Garment District records. Port Juvee play New York City’s New Colossus Festival, March 11th-15th. The band have previously toured with DIIV, POND, Twin Peaks, Titus Andronicus and more.

MOTION CONTROL is the forthcoming follow-up to CRIMEWAVE and sees the band expanding their sound on a deeper level. They’ve teamed up with producer Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend, D’Angelo, Weezer) who happened to stumble across an early Port Juvee demo at a house party. He dug it so much he decided to connect with the band and invite them to his home-studio “Hook & Fade Studios” in Brooklyn, NY.

MOTION CONTROL sees the band addressing themes of communication and a subsequent breakdown in an age of endless technological advancement. The lead single, “Hope to Lose” tackles a flawed model of success thrust upon current generations by previous ones. “Desert Moon Palace” is an introspective surfy jam that reflects on life decisions and the never-ending search for more. “Tropics” sees the band experimenting with a softer, slow-burning approach and title track “Motion Control” is a futuristic odyssey fueled by anxious synths and cinematic stylings.
