Today is one of those days when I would just rather be at home. It’s nothing to do with how things are in our office – I’m really just craving some quality sofa time with my cat, who was a little poorly yesterday (apparently feeding your cat loads of rich treats in one day is a terrible idea – there were multiple, messy consequences). My partner is away tonight, so for the first time in a long time, I will be on my own, with a vast evening of fun stretching out before me (well, I arrive home from work at around 8 so it’s not that vast, but you get the idea). What should I do with my evening? Paint my nails? Record some music? Binge watch Ru Paul’s Drag Race? Whatever I decide to do tonight, you can be sure I will listening to the new single from Canadian powerhouse Weaves on my commute home. ‘#53‘ is a mix-match of indie rock realness and dream pop fantasy, with manic dance drums and soaring guitar riffs. Lyrics concerning the difficulties young people face in today’s society are belted out defiantly by singer/songwriter Jasmine Burke, as she contemplates ‘existing on the road and existing at home and living in a time when a lot of younger people feel helpless’ as the rhythm section thrashes about relentlessly. Whilst the song concerns feelings of helplessness, the track is anything but, reading as more of a obstinate ‘fuck you’ to life’s problems. Enjoy.
