Ryn Weaver is a relatively unknown artist, but given how good this track is, that won’t be the case for long. Weaver, an NYC/LA-based artist, has been collaborating with the likes of Benny Blacno (“Teenage Dream”, “Tik Tok,” “Moves Like Jagger”), Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, and Charli XCX (this summer’s collaborator of choice), according to Mic. And it’s working out for her because I can’t get enough of this song.
“OctaHate,” currently the only track on Weaver’s SoundCloud, showcases Weaver’s rich vocals and a synth-happy background reminiscent of classic Passion Pit sounds. Throughout, the track transitions from rhythmic, melancholic verses to a full-blown anthemic chorus. It’s catchy as hell and definitely a perfect song for those summer drives along the coast.
