Following the release of their first single, “Motorcycle,” Toronto’s Weaves are striking while the pavements still hot with “Take a Dip.”
“Dip” reveals another side to the band, showcasing their more hypnotic, rhythmic tendencies. If “Motorcycle” was a bouncy, noisy joyride, “Take a Dip” is a tense, dry-heave. The band sounds as if they’re constantly being wound-up– the slow groovy grind of the tune more punishing with every repeat. Jasmyn Burke’s vocals skitter and stop in line with the drums, adding to the taut feeling of the song.
The only release comes as the chorus cascades, and as soon as Burke beckons with the line “come on honey…” Morgan Waters’ dissonant tone is reeled in, joining for the dizzying hook.
The band will be making their CMJ Music Marathon debut this week in New York, and to celebrate the band shares their video for “Take A Dip.” Watch it over at BrooklynVegan and download the track on Bandcamp.
