Italian electro band We Are Waves has released a music video for the song “Worship” which was on their debut album Labile. The group’s material and their music video pays tribute to the new wave era, and it was shot on analog VHS using a NordMende camcorder. I hadn’t come across this band before but I really like the sound they’re going for, as it balances equal parts drearier post punk with synth heavy electro and new wave. Additional details are below.

Today is out the new clip of the electro-wave band from Turin (Italy) We Are Waves.
Shot entirely on analog VHS using a vintage 1985 NordMende camcorder, “Worship” (second single from the successful debut album “Labile”) is a rough homage to New Wave video era, born in early 80’s when first post-punk acts were reshaping the musical scene and the entire cultural aesthetic of the decade to come.
Low resolution, faded colors and video noise are random, due to the conditions of the camera the band decided to use. The shooting style is in keeping with its time, in sharp contrast with the modern and aggressive music. There is no digital post-production.

Enjoy the video.
