One of Breaking More Waves’ Ones To Watch 2015, Ryn Weaver got in to a bit of trouble the other day when she was accused of throwing shade at Beyonce (here), even though she quickly deleted the tweet and affirmed her love for Queen Bey. It seems that these days the internet has decreed that it is not acceptable to even question anything about Mrs Knowles-Carter – possibly a dangerous thing?
Thankfully there’s no trouble or question with Weaver’s latest song*, a taster from what we can expect from her debut album, released in June via Mad Love / Interscope (in the USA at least). This one has a real ‘moment’ just after the three minute mark, trust us. The Fool (which is the title track from the long-player) ticks and links all the pop boxes marked Passion Pit and Marina & The Diamonds (a good thing). Ryn’s also playing her debut UK show on June 3rd (full details still to be announced), which will inevitably be in London, because that’s how the music industry works; but wouldn’t it be fantastic if she decided instead to debut at Exeter’s Cavern or maybe the Adelphi Club in Hull?
*Footnote – we’d normally stream via Soundcloud, where there isn't a visual to watch on You Tube, because Hype Machine would pick up the track and there’s the possibility for a lot more people to hear the song using that mechanism, but alas her label has uploaded a 1 minute 30 second snippet of The Fool to Soundcloud rather than the full version on You Tube, which is a bit useless to everyone really.
