We recently checked out Portland Post Punk band J.Graves and their excellent new video “Valentine”
The music is fast and fierce and the video is fun and inventive. We are big fans of creativity and J. Graves has a treasure trove of it .
In this concept, new single Valentine is the first stepping stone, leading viewers into a visual world full of piercing music, nice beaches, swords, and chain-mail armor. Under the surface, however, Valentine is a song that brims with barely contained despair; a tumult unfettered by its brighter sound. Buried beneath howling refrains and gaunt overdrives lies something equal parts mournful and angry as Graves reflects on an unhealthy relationship that ended just as harshly as it existed
