Published Nov 20, 2019Weaves have shared a strange new song called "Internet Tears" today alongside a deep-internet-themed video that will have you saying "WTF? LOL."
Fans of Weaves may notice a distinct shift in style, both in the new music and and its video, which shows the band in a green-screened internet sub-universe, interacting with aliens, .gifs, Windows XP backgrounds and memes brought to life.
Frontwoman Jasmyn Burke explains further:
I was watching something on the Internet that made me cry and started thinking about how ridiculous and funny and peculiar it is that we can sit alone staring at a screen and feel such strong feelings of happiness or sadness or anger while just browsing. It's like imposed feelings or something. Maybe you can relate.
According to a statement from the band, this new ridiculousness is likely to continue well into the band's forthcoming record, predicted to drop sometime in 2020.
The song comes as Weaves' first release since their 2018 Polaris Music Prize-shortlisted album Wide Open.
