the album retains their gripping punky pyrotechnics whilst developing an anthemic quality that breathes powerful personas into each song – their melodic fuzz has a touching strength to it that makes them stand out amongst a crowd of diy rockers.
The record sees Burke extend herself as a performer - moving more frequently to the centre of arrangements and revealing new facets of her unique and powerful singing voice - as the band find ways to interpret the growing diversity of her expression. their sound ranges From the glammy Saturday night strut of “Slicked,” to the stripped-down, pedal steel-abetted torch song “Wide Open,” to the searing “Scream,” a warped duet with Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq that likely constitutes Weaves’ wildest recording to date. if you like chastity belt, cherry glazer or diet cig – you might just love weaves.
