Words: Saam Das
Running a site that writes about music these days can sometimes feel a bit redundant - a thousand and one places all writing about the same things, often within minutes of the music appearing online. Ryn Weaver is a new artist who has received such treatment, along with endorsements by Jessie Ware and How To Dress Well. Her emergence in June was punctuated by the recent appearance of 'Promises', a glistening pop anthem that has compelled me to publicise it despite its existing prominence.
Weaver (aka sometime actress Aryn Wuthrich) has already made some influential friends - her debut offering 'OctaHate' being co-written by Charli XCX and co-produced by Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit, Cashmere Cat, and Benny Blanco. The latter two artists have also combined to put out Weaver's debut 'Promises' EP, via their Friends Keep Secrets label. Listen to a couple of tracks from the EP below.
