Weaves have shared another look at their upcoming sophomore record ‘Wide Open’. New single “Scream” is a warped duet with Inuk throat singer Tagaq, so is therefore quite a dramatic departure from the previous singles. Weaves bring their new record to Cambridge on 13th November (tickets).
Despite being longtime friends this is the first collaboration between Tagaq and Weaves’ lead singer Jasmyn Burke, and their warped duet, which builds from a slinking, minimal opening toward an arresting and searingly intense peak, likely constitutes Weaves’ wildest recording to date. Beginning with Burke’s stark declaration that “we are living in a time when misery is just common circumstance,” the song is both a personal statement and a ferocious rebuke to the societal forces that seek to erase and undermine marginalized voices.
