Alternative indie-pop iconoclasts Joywave have shared the official video for their anti-chaos track ‘Like A Kennedy’.
Concocting a distinctively modern approach towards pop music, ‘Like A Kennedy’ holds a deep meaning of political turmoil,“complete exhaustion and media burnout”. Its pensive, dreamy sound textures and the video’s compelling visuals are equally powerful and thought-provoking as it reimagines the assassination of JFK, reflecting today’s current climate.
Vocalist Daniel Armbuster explains, “The past several years has provided a front row seat to the most turbulent time in American history since the 1960s. We’re constantly exposed to a loop of never-ending tragedy in the media, but so much of it seems avoidable with proper legislation and governance.
“The events of November 1963 are still fresh in many Americans minds. How is it possible that in the 55 years since an American president fell victim to gun violence, nothing has changed? Until we stop clinging to partisan talking points and clichés, the almost daily, deadly cycle of shootings in our country is bound to continue.”
They are now wrapping-up their eagerly anticipated third album and will be coming to the UK to play a one-off headline show at London’s The Lexington on November 20th following series of intimate live performances across the US.
