Ben Khan – 1000

Hailing from Rochester, NY, infectious electro-rockers Joywave give a new lease of life to the track, ‘Somebody New’, which originally appeared on the five-piece’s EP last year.

‘Somebody New’ is an adrenaline fuelled anthem with a cool video.

They worked alongside director, Keith Schofield for the video, taking on the glitchy aesthetic and skateboarding fails of the games’ star riders on their journey through the streets of LA – paying homage to the infamous action sports idol’s and the best-selling 00’s computer games ‘Skate 3′ and ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater’. The single has been selected by ‘X Games’ as one of their signature songs for 2015, with the X Game team even creating their own custom version of the video.

The debut LP ‘How Do You Feel Now?’ arrives on 25 May via Cultco Music/Hollywood Records. Pre-order here.
