Although PORT JUVEE embody a sound that is equally indebted to New York City post-punk as it is to a listless Californian vibe, the Canadian prairies are where the band calls home. PORT JUVEE's upcoming release "Motion Control" will arrive in 2020 on Canadian upstart Garment District Records, with NYC-based producer/engineer mixer Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend's "Contra" and "Modern Vampires of the City") at the helm.
PORT JUVEE has been selected to showcase at SXSW, Rifflandia, House of Vans, FOCUS Wales, New Colossus NYC and Treefort Music Fest, and have supported acts such as DIIV, POND, Twin Peaks, DillyDally, Titus Andronicus and more.
"Their sound breaks boundaries, incorporating NYC post-punk and surfy California skate-punk. They bring frantic and tenacious energy with droning guitars and gritty lyrics" - EARMILK
"Like the rapid increase of the pulse or a spike of adrenaline, the brand new track from Port Juvee is a high-tempo observation of living in the digital age." - Wonderland Magazine
"The pace and atmosphere even make the low vocals have a certain electricity to them, like a sad oldies song being crooned over a panicked punk tune" - KERRANG! Magazine
