Weaves shares new video for “Tick”

Weaves shares new video for "Tick," the track comes off Weaves' self-titled LP, out today on Kanine/Buzz/Memphis Industries

Weaves are celebrating the release of their Self-titled LP with the premiere of the video for the album’s opener, “Tick.” Taken from their debut full-length, which is out today on Kanine, Buzz Records and Memphis Industries, the track was among the first to attract attention to the band when it was released in the summer of 2015. The video, directed by Benjamin Dabu, stars comedian Chris Locke as a man who is transported by the band into an alternate reality, and according to Weaves’ guitarist Morgan Waters, the experience may have been more than he had bargained for.

“The video is about the incessant ticking of the clock, nagging at you to realize your dreams, and the gentle reminder that sometimes dreams should remain fantasy,” says Waters who helped edit the video. “Music makes you feel young. But what happens when you’re suddenly the old guy at a party trying to get the roach going? Our friend, and brilliant comedian Chris Locke, plays a man who stares into the void, hears our song and experiences a midlife crisis.”

The band are currently on tour in Europe through July, with a North American run to follow in August. There are full details below.
