Weaves Share Video For ‘One More’, Euro Tour Dates

0

Debut LP Out June 17 Via Kanine/Buzz/Memphis Industries.

Am I the only one who thinks that Jasmyn Burke, singer with Toronto punks Weaves, sounds quite like Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs? She also shares the New Yorkers abundance of charisma and impassioned performances. This is clearly evident on ‘One More’, which was the first track to be released from the band’s upcoming self titled debut album. Now, we also have a video for the track. Directed by guitarist Morgan Waters on the quartet’s recent tour of the American Southwest with Sunflower Bean, it sees Burke appearing as a ‘disgruntled cheerleader’, replete with Wal-Mart pom poms and a second-hand robe.

“This was our first American tour and we didn’t know if we were going to kill each other, being stuck in a van together the whole time,” Waters told FADER. “We shot the video ourselves in Rock City, New Mexico in the middle of our drive from Toronto to Los Angeles. We’re Canadians so we had to get to know the desert the old fashioned way: with pom poms and a video camera. I filmed Jasmyn from the back of the van as we both yelled at Spencer to drive the right speed while Zach did playback and offered moral support. We smelled burning and assumed it was the smell of America but the mechanic told us the emergency brake was stuck.”
