When We Met





Aliens and cavemen meet in When We Met's new video

With love and an adoring energy, When We Met have been known to make tuneful indie pop songs over the course of their three years as a songwriting duo. While the wonderment of their tracks is already established, what has yet to become obvious is how the two go about rendering their songs visually. Luckily they've changed that, with a new animated video that's attention grabbing. 

The animation for "Ride the Tide" is somewhat stylistically reminiscent of early Adult Swim cartoons like Home Movies, vibrant in color and effectively minimal and funny in its execution. With surfing cavemen, jet setting aliens and beach performance beach scenes, the video keeps you watching all the way through.

On the "Ride the Tide," the band say: 

"Underneath the new wave surf vibe is a sexy love song. The back and forth movement of lust, the up’s and downs of life and abstract thoughts formed ‘Ride the Tide’. Because we are fans of his crude imagery, playful takes on serious subject matter and taboos, we were thrilled to work with the cartoonist Magnificent Kaaboom for this song. With just a little direction from us, we wanted him to have the freedom to create something magnificent… and he did." 

Watch the video for "Ride the Tide" below and catch When We Met's last set of the season on 12.23 at The Lombard Pub where Sorta Ultra will be playing their last show ever and the New Not Normals will be debuting a new drummer.





Mood Music: When We Met - "Ride the Tide"

When We Met brings a loving dynamic back into rock. The duo, consisting of Bryan Casey and Melissa, create fully textered sounds with just the two of them. Sounds are created on a solely collaborative basis by the two songwriters and musicians, who also record and produce everything all themselves. Aside from the occasional use of a drummer, When We Met is a true DIY effort of blending indie, alternative rock and electro pop elements.

Keeping the band as stripped down as possible has meant that Bryan and Melissa have developed an even better stage presence, with a certain intimacy to their chemistry that can only be achieved by working so well together. See for yourselves during When We Met's free show at Slim's on Saturday, along with Avalanche Lily and Rascal Miles. Give "Ride the Tide" a listen below.





Vibrissae does Siouxsie, show tomorrow

There's no better time of year to participate in a Siouxsie & the Banshees tribute album than now. Local electrogaze trio Vibrissae were fortunate enough to do so. Sao Paulo, Brazil based blog and label The Blog That Celebrates Itself released Desert Kisses: A Tribute to Siouxsie & the Banshees a little over a week ago and its celebration of one of the most influential post-punk bands in the game is ideal for the Halloween season. Vibrissae's featured cover of "Red Over White" aces the balance between their individual, celebrated sound and that which makes Siouxsie & the Banshees still worshipped to this day.

Vibrissae has a show coming up tomorrow supporting the first Portland appearance for Cincinatti art rockers Lung, along with the beautifully blended indie-electropop-punky alt blues of dynamic duo When We Met and the psych tinged post-punk of the New Not Normals at the High Water Mark.

Hopefull they'll play their version of "Red Over White" tomorrow but just in case, here it is:
