CRITIC REVIEWS

Northern Transmissions
Undoubtedly honest lyrically and with just as much energy and quirks as they’ve always had, this is Weaves evolving perfectly.

Exclaim!

On Wide Open, Weaves prove that they can flirt with convention without losing their edge.

DIY
Leaner, more menacing, but still quintessentially Weaves, ‘Wide Open’ does what it says on the tin, in the best possible way.

Pitchfork

As much as their first album was about living in the musical moment, their follow-up, Wide Open, is about reflecting on moments at large. Weaves shed their improvisational tendencies in favor of more polished pop, and this swap pushes frontwoman Jasmyn Burke’s songwriting to the foreground. It’s a welcome change that sees what Weaves can do inside a box instead of operating outside one.

Loud and Quiet
This time around Weaves’ outlook appears sunnier and more upbeat, with Morgan Waters’ guitar parts janglier than ever, while Jasmyn Burke’s lyrics explore darker themes of insecurity and political alienation.

Drowned in Sound

All in all, Wide Open demonstrates a band in transition.

AllMusic

Wide Open is a more polished affair than its predecessor, but Weaves haven't lost their gift for pairing knotty sonic architecture with gale force charisma.

60
Under The Radar

For all its personality and heart, Wide Open is just too breezy in its consistency to be a certified gem.
