[Video] Weaves - Shithole
With their self-titled debut album out now on Memphis Industries,
Toronto band Weaves have unveiled their video for 'Shithole', a standout track from the record.
The Trevor Blumas-directed film was made in Toronto during a brief touring break and is made up of close shots of vocalist Jasmyn Burke in a variety of guises.
"We shot this video on a hot summer day with no AC in the Coffin Factory Lofts in Toronto. Sweaty and intimate," says Burke. "It depicts the build up and break down of myself through the different looks. I wrote the song when I was living in a shitty place and was feeling kind of down, but the mysterious thing is I have no recollection of writing it. I found it on my computer one day and had thought I must have sent it to Morgan but I hadn't. So we essentially did the demo the day after I re-discovered the track and were playing it live soon after."
The band's North American tour with Mitski and Fear of Men opens on November 3 in Toronto.
