Weaves "Shithole" (video)
Published Oct 19, 2016Weaves finally unleashed their self-titled debut album earlier this year, and they're keeping the momentum behind it rolling with a new video for "Shithole."
The clip was shot on a steamy summer day (sans air conditioning) at the Coffin Factory Lofts in the band's hometown of Toronto. Directed by Doomsquad's Trevor Blumas, the clip finds Weaves frontwoman Jasmyn Burke building herself up and breaking herself down by experimenting with a variety of 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," she said in a statement about the track's origin. "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."
