Getting to know... Weaves

Jasmyn Burke sits down with a cup of tea (and some coconut yogurt with almonds, fyi) to tell us all about her band’s self-titled debut.

Getting to know... Weaves
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Your debut album has just come out - has it been a long time in the works?
We have been working on the record since our EP came out, so for about two years.


Did you have an idea of what you wanted to create before you started? Are there any over-arching themes?
I’m not sure there was a clear idea, but I guess the goal is to be honest and open. With regards to themes, I love jean jackets and they made an appearance on both our EP and the LP. When you put on a jean jacket it just feels good. Easier conversations, more laughter and maybe a nice cold beer.

Is there anything in particular on the record that means a lot to you?
Every single song.


Do you think you’ve managed to achieve everything on the record that you intended?
I mean who knows, it feels right, but I guess I’m always trying to look forward and what I can create next. So I am very happy with the record, but I’m excited about the next one!


What do you hope listeners will take away from the album?
I hope they enjoy the songs and feel like we created something that feels truthful and from our hearts to theirs.


Are there any other sides to the band you hope to explore on future releases?
I really hope that a few years down the line we write a country record. The Carter Sisters made beautiful music and I’d love to explore how we might make a country record.


Anything else we should know?
We all love Vaseline. We use it daily. That and we all started taking a Papaya/Pineapple pill daily and oil of oregano weekly on the road to keep us healthy. Oils are key on the road. Jajoba oil, lavender oil, tea tree oil. Tough to store and easy to spill but if you can bring them they’ll do wonders.
