CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

Between laughter, woozy instrumentals and joyous, stop-start rhythms, Weaves has an undeniable feeling of fun surrounding it. As a debut, it perfectly captures the band's personality and sound: captivating, incomparable and deliciously unique.

80
The Skinny
Weaves can flick between breezy, cute pop hits to tight-fisted punk snarlers in the blink of an eyeball, and the record's best tracks are a combination of both.

DIY
Both deliciously raucous and whimsical, Weaves’ ‘wonky-pop’ debut is a whole lot of fun.

Consequence of Sound
Weaves’ music is difficult to pin down, yet undeniably memorable. A distinctive wonky guitar sound, commanding vocals, and disobedient rhythms create something beautifully unhinged and challenging.

Loud and Quiet
There are no ballads or down-tempo tracks here, so on one hand it may lack dynamics, but it also works in Weaves’ favour to keep the momentum going. Constantly fun, they feel like a band on the launch pad.

Pitchfork
For all of Weaves’ admirable attempts to poke and prod indie rock towards progress, the irony is that they still sound like a throwback.

They're still in search mode, though, exceedingly pushing themselves to write clever pop songs that sometimes expose their calculated overconfidence.

Drowned in Sound
There might be a good band lurking within Weaves. They just need to decide what exactly they are.

Os singles deste álbum me empolgaram um pouco, mas infelizmente, ouvindo do inicio ao fim, não é nenhum trabalho muito expressivo. Rock de garagem por vezes com uma pegada mais punk e por vezes mais alternativa, as guitarras e os vocais são o carro chefe deste disco, com algumas melodias bem interessantes e enérgicas. Há bastante vivacidade e explosão, algumas dessas canções podem funcionar muito bem ao vivo. Entretanto, não ... read more
