Toronto’s Weaves explode into your eardrums, with ‘One More’ and a frenetic cavalcade of drums and a flood of multi-tracked hooks is matched by restless melodies, ‘One More’ is a fierce assertion of independence and individuality says front lady, Jasmyn Burke: “Sometimes I’m bothered by female lyrical content that feels indirect or is only about wanting a certain thing.”
“I think there’s room for women to have a more individual voice in music and to be having fun rather than looking for their next love. It’s OK for it to not be that, and to be more independent. Maybe it’s going out and getting drunk, and it’s not like a fairytale, sometimes it’s more shitty and pizza and that’s OK! That’s gonna be life for a while!” she adds.
Taking the approach that more is even MORE, ‘One More’ is like the playful girl/boy of B-52‘s gyrating with the attitude of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs and X-Ray Spex, it’s an unstoppable splurge of multicolored mayhem before collapsing to the ground in a mess of arms and legs, it makes you thirsty for more! Which is a good job because ‘One More’ is a teaser of their forthcoming debut album out this June, having recently signed to Kanine and Memphis Industries. Allies of Dilly Dally, Weaves are currently over in Austin for SXSW and touring in the US with Sunflower Bean shortly.
