Ryn Weaver – “Octahate” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
“Octahate,” the song that made pan-genre pop singer Ryn Weaver an overnight sensation, now has a video. Directed by Goodwin from a treatment co-written by Weaver, it features the Artist To Watch in various states of poise and duress wearing a wide range of elaborate outfits. Rotary phones, bows and arrows, spooky faceless men, and much more populate this particular wonderland. Also in the mix is a young girl who seems to represent a younger Weaver or her inner child. There’s a lot to parse here; the video is every bit as wildly colorful as the song itself. Watch below.
Weaver’s Promises EP is out now on Friends Keep Secrets/Interscope. She’ll make her live debut 10/22 at the Bowery Ballroom in New York during CMJ Music Maraton.
