Queens, NY-based rock band WIVES has shared the video for “Hit Me Up,” their recent single from the forthcoming debut album, So Removed. Directed by Carson Cox, the video showcases the band performing live and against what looks like a card game of sorts.
Watch the video for “Hit Me Up” below:
“No matter how big the bad wolf, there is always a weakness,” Cox explains of the video. “We tried to remind ourselves here in this video: things aren’t always as they seem.”
“Hit Me Up” follows additional So Removed early singles “Waving Past Nirvana,” “The 20 Teens” and “Workin’,” which earned support from NPR Music’s All Songs Considered. Vocalist/guitarist Jay Beach, guitarist Andrew Bailey, drummer Adam Sachs, and bassist Alex Crawford will celebrate the release of So Removed with shows at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade (10/3) and Philadelphia’s Dawson Street Pub (10/5) before setting out on a tour of Europe and the UK tour dates in November.
