Set List

  • "Coo Coo"
  • "Eagle"
  • "One More"

The Toronto art-rock quartet Weaves released its self-titled debut album this past summer. It's filled with quirky, angular melodies; lead singer Jasmyn Burke's rhythmic, deadpan delivery; and an enervating sense that things could fall apart at any moment. Along with Burke, the band includes guitarist Morgan Waters, drummer Spencer Cole and bassist Zach Bines.

When Weaves performs live, the visual focus is Burke's frenetic movement. But she's only one piece of the four-part musical show — each member's contribution somehow coalesces into a grin-inducing whole. See for yourself with the band's performance of "One More," below.
