A dark, brooding track that instills dread...and doubt.
Why You Should Care:
Some musicians take their videos seriously, but none take as much pleasure in crafting stranger-than-fiction videos as Joywave does. Their debut album How Do You Feel Now? was heavy on the dark synths on songs like “Destruction” and “Somebody New,” but their videos show a complete other side of the band. The video for “Tongues” starred a colony of nudists being hunted down with a clothing gun. “It’s A Trip!” is a sun-soaked, jet-ski romp through the Bay of Miami with the band as they progressively age and shrivel away on the water. Content track “Doubt” is no different here - Director Olivier Gondry keeps the concept relatively simple, but strange. With just one spotlight and a pitch-black set, the band members’ faces are manipulated and melded into one another. Check out the video below.
Joywave will be playing a sold-out show in DC this Friday, March 2, at U Street Music Hall. For those that missed out, they'll be coming back on June 26 to Jiffy Lube Live along with MisterWives and Walk the Moon as openers for Thirty Seconds to Mars.
