Weaves have released their first single One More, which is lifted from their debut full length. Take a listen to the single via Soundcloud below.


Showcasing the band at their most frenetic, the track functions, according to frontwoman Jasmyn Burke, as an assertion of independence. “Sometimes I’m bothered by female lyrical content that feels indirect or is only about wanting a certain thing,” says Burke. “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 its more shitty and pizza and that’s ok! That’s gonna be life for a while!”

With the single, the band have announced their signing to Kanine and Memphis Industries, who will be releasing the band’s album in conjunction with Buzz Records on June 17th. In advance of the release the band will be heading to Austin for SXSW and touring in the US with Sunflower Bean.

Weaves have been working on their debut LP for almost as long as they have been a band, tracking with Leon Taheny (Dilly Dally, Owen Pallett, Austra) in sessions that span most of the last two years. Mixed by Alex Newport (Death Cab for Cutie, Melvins, At The Drive In) and mastered by John Greenham (Death Grips, Sky Ferreira), the result is an album that traverses the band’s history, exploring every facet of their always adventurous approach to pop music and leaving no idea unexplored. Filled beyond bursting with hooks and possibilities, it’s the sound of a band propelled forward by the thrill of discovering the limits of their sound and gleefully pushing past them. “We’re always trying to push ourselves,” says Morgan Waters from the band, “sometimes it feels like bands aren’t necessary, like they’re not the one’s pushing music forward, so I think we’re trying to hopefully prove that bands aren’t boring. If we are going to be a band and if we are going to do this guitar, bass and drums thing then we might as well see how much we can fuck it up.”

Weaves self-titled LP will be released on Kanine in the US, Buzz Records in Canada and Memphis Industries in the rest of the World on June 17th. It’s available for preorder here.
