Toronto pop eccentrics Weaves premiere their most immediate single to date ‘Shithole’ (out 20th October 2014, via Buzz Records).
Having only released one EP and playing live as a band for little over a year, Weaves have quickly become an internationally buzzed about band. They were recently chosen as Rolling Stone’s “Band To Watch,” and have shared the stage with Constantines, Tune-Yards and Austra, playing such venues as Massey Hall and The Phoenix.

Their critically acclaimed debut EP was produced by Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals) and Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Fucked Up).
Formed by lead singer Jasmyn Burke and guitarist Morgan Waters, Weaves is a violent collision of soul, punk and pop. With the addition of a virtuosic rhythm section made up of Spencer Cole and Zach Bines, and you’ve got a band that’s slick yet slimy, backwards yet forward thinking, perhaps on the tip of collapsing.
