VIDEO: “Slicked” by Weaves

It’s been a little over a year since the release of Weaves‘ acclaimed debut LP, and today the band are releasing their heavily anticipated sophomore LP, Wide Open. To mark the release the band are sharing the video for their track “Slicked,” a clip directed by animator Zak Tatham that points an absurdist lens at Weaves’ pursuit of a broad collection of athletic endeavors (often several simultaneously), and applies an array of video manipulation techniques to depict drummer Spencer Cole as a roller blading beer can, guitarist Morgan Waters sliding into home plate from three directions at once, and bassist Zach Bines as a flowing pillar of mesh-clad liquid.
