Candy,” the latest track to be pulled from Weaves’ forthcoming self-titled debut LP, has premiered on Stereogum and with Zane Lowe on Beats 1. Encapsulating the Canadian band’s high-wire approach to pop songwriting the track is, according to singer Jasmyn Burke, one of her earliest collaborations with guitarist Morgan Waters and remains one of her favourites.

“Candy is one of the first tracks that we worked on and I remember there was an immediate excitement that came after demoing it with just Morgan and myself in his room” she says. “It’s impulsive and almost too much, but definitely one we’re most proud of as a band. It feels really sweet tasting in my brain. Like a bright pink piece of cake. Very rambunctious in a way. Living life just like a pie, sweeter in the seams, ya know? Life is sometimes rough but you can hit that sweet spot and I wanted to try and write that down. Fantasizing about a way to live and behave and hoping everyone is on board to join in the fruitful haze.”

Weaves’ self-titled LP will be released on Memphis Industries in the UK and the rest of the World, with the exception of in the US and Canada (where it will be released through Kanine and Buzz, respectively), on 17th June. It is available for pre-order with instant downloadS of “One More” and “Candy” here.
