San Francisco Bay Area band Rogue Wave has stolen my heart in many ways over the years, and not just because of where they hail from. Their music lilts and lifts, drenched in sonorous harmonies and prominent percussion.
For their upcoming album Permalight (out March 2 on Brushfire) they have assembled 11 short videos with the help of Tyler Manson and Emmett Malloy, filmed in and around the Bay Area. This one shows our favorite organ donation recipient out and about, with his awesome hair and his good attitude.
This retro-feeling song starts the album, with the singsong falsetto opening before the handclaps hit:
Solitary Gun – Rogue Wave
Read more about their adventures and concept behind the filming over at IFC (including the Zach Rogue’s love of Bluebottle coffee – yum) and watch all the video vignettes from around the SF Bay Area as they are unveiled at the Rogue Wave site.
