Fresh from the infamous ‘meltdown’, Wavves is back with a new video in tow. ‘No Hope Kids’ is a rather charming video actually. No frills, just music. Some may say that Wavves is a bit overrated, but you have to dig deep to fully enjoy this band if it’s not your type of sound.
Directed by Pete Ohs (Fiery Furnaces, Arcade Fire, The Unicorns) the video is filled with clips of their European tour and their life on the road. A little bit of fresh air from camp Wavves.
I think of Wavves as the baby brother band of MGMT. As odd as that may or may not sound to some of you, you have to admit they have the same vibe. Recently TheyShootMusic.com from Austria, has filmed the band playing ‘So Bored’ amongst a few others, acoustically. It really lets the listener get more of the song in my opinion. Stripped down and raw is the only way to describe it. Wavves are getting big, huh?
Wavves are currently on tour with a stop at the Bowery Ballroom in late June. Check out their tourdates HERE
