Canadian indie rockers Weaves are going Americana with their upcoming LP Wide Open (October 6), evolving the pleasant punk rock sound of the band’s Polaris Prize-shortlisted, 2016 self-titled debut.
Singer-songwriter Jasmyn Burke wrote the new album from a personal place. “#53” — the Springsteenian lead single and today’s featured song — is Exhibit A. Per a press statement: “When writing ‘#53,’ I let out how I was feeling about a lot of things. Existing on the road, existing at home, living in a time when a lot of younger people feel helpless – it’s all given me a new vigor and desire to be ferocious with our music.”
