Band of the Day

Weaves

Bent-out-of-shape pop music that's eclectic, catchy, and unpredictable
I caught you under bothered, and told you stop the swim. Let’s break so I can wander, plummet when we get deep.
lyrics from Take A Dip

Having only released one EP and playing live as a band for little over a year, Weaves have quickly become an internationally buzzed about band. They were recently chosen as Rolling Stone’s “Band To Watch”, and have shared the stage with Constantines, Tune-Yards and Austra. Having been tagged as pop eclectics, seductive art-rockers and musicians with a delirious swirl, Weaves make bent-out-of-shape pop music that’s catchy and unpredictable.

Formed by lead singer Jasmyn Burke (of Rattail) and guitarist Morgan Waters (of EMI recording artists Sweet Thing), Weaves is a violent collision of soul, punk and pop. The tension between Burke’s affinity for topsy-turvy tunes and Waters’ ear for buoyant pop hooks makes for music that revels in fun, arty, noisy weirdness yet still maintain a level of accessibility. With the addition of a virtuosic rhythm section made up of Spencer Cole and Zach Bines, and you’ve got a band that’s slick yet slimy, backwards yet forward thinking, perhaps on the tip of collapsing.

Weaves are currently working on their debut LP, a follow-up to their critically acclaimed EP released on Buzz Records which featured production from David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals) and Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Fucked Up).
