Punk rock music videos are often defined by a number of things. Whether it be killer solos, an absolutely wild crowd, or of course, a good-old jam in the garage, these types of videos are very much characterized by lots of action and intensity. The latest video from NJ pop-punk outfit Idle Wave subverts that tradition with an intimate unplugged session of their latest single “Heaven Knows.” The video, which was recorded live by local videographer/photographer Kris Khunachak, showcases lead vocalist Guy Battaglia in a stripped-down setting accompanied by a lush and gorgeous piano accompaniment by composer David Ross Lawn. The video’s simplicity and elegance are surprising and allow viewers to gain a deeper emotional connection to the song. Battaglia’s raw and authentic performance is compelling to watch in real-time. The addition of David Ross Lawn on piano is a unique one yet welcome, as it adds a layer of sophistication and dimension to the track. Credit also to director Kris Khunachak for the fluid and graceful presentation, allowing strong emphasis on the emotion of the material. Check out the video below, and be sure to follow Idle Wave on all social media platforms as well as stream their self-titled EP on Spotify now!
