Winterruption Performance Details
In 2016, Weaves’ self-titled album was among the most anticipated of the year, lauded internationally upon its release for the band’s sideways approach to guitar pop, described as “one of the most unpredictable sounds of 2016” (MTV), and “a triumphant assault on all things conventional” (i-D). For the band, the year was a transformative experience, spent mostly on the road, playing festivals and touring with fellow 2016 breakout artists like Sunflower Bean and Mitski. Upon returning home to Toronto, rather than succumb to the exhaustion of their relentless world takeover, the band was propelled forward by their own momentum, which they corralled like the barely contained energy of their explosive live sets. Surprisingly, singer Jasmyn Burke and guitarist Morgan Waters found themselves possessed by an irrepressible burst of creative energy.
