WEAVES STREAM DEBUT ALBUM EXCLUSIVELY ON i-D

ALBUM RELEASED THIS FRIDAY ON MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES; BAND ON TOUR NOW

WATCH BAND’S NPR TINY DESK CONCERT

“Concocting an elastic blend of oddball pop, spasmodic surf rock, and zanily energetic punk that’s truly all its own. Weaves is a triumphant assault on all things conventional, from vacuous zombie pop to cut-and-dry guitar rock.” – i-D


Weaves‘ debut LP is streaming today on i-D, ahead of its release on Friday through Memphis Industries. Hailed by i-D as “the future of weird pop,” the record has become one of the most anticipated debuts of 2016, also capturing international attention from outlets like Pitchfork, The Guardian, MTV,  FADER, NME, The New York Times, Stereogum, The Sunday Times, and Rolling Stone.
Last week saw the release of Weaves’ superb Tiny Desk Concert at NPR. In support of the album, the band have just embarked on a 30+ date European tour that includes a UK run with Beach Slang.

About Weaves

Weaves have been working on the album 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 Waters, “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 Memphis Industries in the UK and the rest of the World, with the exception of in the US and Canada (where it will be released through Kanine and Buzz, respectively), on 17th June. It is available for pre-order with instant downloads of “One More,” “Candy” and “Coo Coo” here.
