La Neve Announces New EP History Solved, Shares Video for New Song: Watch
La Neve, the dance-punk project of Downtown Boys songwriter and labor organizer Joey La Neve DeFrancesco, is back with a new record. The History Solved EP is out April 15, and, today, they’ve shared the Zac Puls–directed video for the title track. Watch it below.
DeFrancesco said the video is “in some ways an attempt to recreate the joy and chaos of the band’s live shows at a time when we had all been unable to perform for so long. The exaggerated camera movements work to bring us back to the freeing disorientation that live music, at its best, can provide.”
The EP was produced by Marco Buccelli and mastered by Heba Kadry. It also features Karna Ray on drums. A hometown show at the Black Box Theater in Providence, Rhode Island takes place on March 12. Outside of their recording efforts, DeFrancesco is also a historian, writer, and co-founder of the Union of Musicians and Allied Workers—a collective that has sought better pay from streaming platforms like Spotify.
