The Weaves were a love at first listen situation. They immediately brought me back to my undergrad days spent listening to bands like Le Tigre, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Gravy Train. It’s manic and beautiful and if the way my brain operated had a soundtrack, this would be a very close fit. There’s something about this kind of post-punk sound that always rings honest, un-fussed over and unpretentious.
In a world of too much try-to-hard music, I appreciate a band that sounds erratic and untamed. Every track they have just unravels with unpredictable yet satisfying transitions. They are on tour across the US now and definitely ones to watch.
