The latest single from Weaves upcoming self-titled debut album is available to stream now,
'Coo Coo' is built around an uncharacteristically mellow percussive pulse and a simple, yet subtly irresistible vocal melody and sums up the energy of the band's live performance, which, according to vocalist Jasmyn Burke, is in part the result of the song's development as a longtime staple of Weaves' live sets.
Jasmyn said: "This one came together relatively quickly but it's really grown on us as a band as we've played it live.
“We recorded it off the floor with very few overdubs as we really feed off of each other when we play it in a live context, so we tried to capture that in the recording.
“The song sort of just fell out of me. I had been frustrated with a person who had been in and out of my life for many years and I finally decided to cut them out for good.
“So for me Coo Coo was about looking back and also letting go. I was sort of laughing at my time spent jumping in and out of some sort of 10-year rendezvous that was leading to nowhere because I don't think we ever really wanted it to work. I mean, where would be the fun in that?"
