Toronto Band To Watch Weaves put out their self-titled debut of experimental-leaning “bent pop” back in June. They’re heading out on tour with Mitski and Fear Of Men next month, and in advance of that, they’ve shared a new video for album track “Shithole.” Directed by Trevor Blumas, the clip stays focused on frontwoman Jasmyn Burke’s expressive face as she tries on and discards various looks.
“We shot this video on a hot Summers day with no AC in the Coffin Factory Lofts in Toronto,” Burke says. “Sweaty and intimate. Visually it’s sort of the build up and break down of myself through the different 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. 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.” Watch below.
