Canadian quartet, Weaves, knows that time is your worst existential foe in their new video “Tick.” We’ve all had those instances, especially during birthdays, when we feel slightly lonely and scared as we start aging, becoming closer to midlife crisis. “Tick” shows that life becomes a spiraling clownfest where we try to convince ourselves that immortality is still achievable. The chaotic euphonious soundscape where syncopated beats clash with the percussive assembly resonates the inner mayhem we all or will go through. “Tick” may sound like an instrumental collage where pop and rock are in an ambivalent collaboration, but this strangeness is what draws you in – they unpredictably yield a refreshing sound:

“Tick” is from Weaves’ debut album, which was released on June 17 of this year. The band is on tour now:
