Canyon Rays ‘Turn Off the Wave Machine’ in New Video – Exclusive Premiere

Subscribe to on

Movie trailers usually tease bigger projects. But in their new video for ‘Turn Off the Wave Machine,’ the Canyon Rays showcase their new song with a trailer that looks like the real thing. You can watch the exclusive premiere above.

From the parental-guidance disclaimer at the start of the video to the accolades and awards that run throughout, we’re a bit disappointed there’s not a whole movie to look forward to after all this.

Following the journey of a relationship, the video is pretty much a boy-meets-girl story, complete with an in-and-out-love narrative. The song’s lyrics, written by band founder Luke Hamel, convey more or less the aftermath of a breakup.

Among the stellar cinematography and muted colors of the video you’ll find the California indie-pop group, which essentially plays itself as the house-party band.

‘Turn Off the Wave Machine’ comes from the Canyon Rays’ debut album, ‘West Coast Babes,’ which is out on Sept. 2.

Before the album’s release, they’ll be heading out on tour. Here’s a complete list of dates:

Aug. 30 – New York City – Pianos
Aug. 31 – Boston – O’Brien’s Bar
Sept. 5 – Philadelphia – Teris
Sept. 6 – Bristol, Pa. – Freddie’s Tavern
Sept. 7 – Washington, DC – Treehouse Lounge
Sept. 8 -Philadelphia – Kung Fu Necktie
Sept. 12 – Brooklyn – Trash Bar
Sept. 13 – Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y. – Bard College
