Weaves have released a video for their new single, “Internet Tears.”
The energetic new tune comes packed with funky instrumental lines as frontwoman Jasmyn Burke wails lines like, “Sometimes the internet/ Makes me cry at night/ Sometimes I cry at night/ looking at the Internet.” The accompanying clip is packed with hilarious meme-worthy content, and is self-aware in its subject matter as the band perform in front of delightfully cheesy gifs.
“I was watching something on the Internet that made me cry and starting thinking about how ridiculous and funny and peculiar it is that we can sit alone staring at a screen and feel such strong feelings of happiness or sadness or anger while just browsing,” Burke explains to The Fader. “It’s like imposed feelings or something. Maybe you can relate.”
