Toronto’s Weaves have just shared their third number off the forthcoming record ‘Wide Open’, set to be released on October 6th via Buzz Records/Kanine/Memphis Industries. ‘Scream’ was recorded in featuring with Canadian singer Tanya Tagaq.
Says Weaves’ vocalist Jasmyn Burke about the track: “I almost don’t think of ‘Scream’ as a song, it’s like a sculpture in the middle of the album, sticking out poking people like a 3D installation. The initial demo was just one guitar riff and me hitting my pant leg really hard and the loop just stirred up some sort of emotional whirlwind in my mind. I think everyone is having a hard time processing what’s happening right now and I started thinking about how some people hate or want to harm me because of my physical appearance, and that made me want to write something about loving yourself.”
The new single, follow-up to ‘#53’ and ‘Walkaway’, is accompanied by a video directed and edited by the band itself. Watch it below.
