Watch: Weaves debut ‘One More’ video, announce UK dates
Toronto self-starters have a new album out this June.
On 17th June, Toronto’s Weaves release their self-titled debut album via Memphis Industries. It’s a keeper, too, excitable garage punk caught up in a twisted strut.
One month ahead of release, Jasmyn Burke and co. bring dressing gowns, cheerleader pom poms and dodgy dance moves to the American Southwest desert. These are “disgruntled cheerleader” vibes, according to Burke. But they look like they’re having a good time, to be honest.
The video lands alongside new UK dates, amounting to a mammoth tour beginning next month.

Difficult second album? Hardly. A year on from their debut, the Canadian odd-pop wonders are back with even more genre-bending anthems and an emotionally open approach to songwriting.
