Wavves channel ‘Top of the Pops’ for new video ‘Million Enemies’
The latest cut form the band’s upcoming album You’re Welcome sees WAVVES go a little glam with not only the song but the video as well. Apparently channeling classic episodes of ‘Top of the Pops’ and ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’ has the band adorned in make-up and shaking their hips.
The song itself has a definitive glam-tinge, adding a foot-stomping sheen to their otherwise pure and chaotic punk sound. It’s a welcomed refrain however, is the use of synths and vocoders add another flavour to the band’s palette.
The video however, isn’t just tinged it is full-on filled with Glam Rock (monstrous) moments. Expect make-up, feather boas, hand claps and fist pumps galore. Video director Gilles O’Kane said “The video for ‘Million Enemies’ explores the power of music as a method of escapism, Glam Rock fashion, counter-culture super fandom, teenage rebellion, and the unique sense of belonging that’s created by listening to your favourite artist.”
