Seasonal Affective Disorder is the debut album from Seattle trio WEEP WAVE. Conceptual pop paired with artistic videos conjure feelings of the overcast season that is our Seattle winter. November is a perfect time for the band’s latest single to emerge from its cocoon. According to the band the track is inspired by the “highs and lows the perpetual gray can take on someone,” as well as the political climate.
“‘A Breakup Song’ is a misleading title. This song has nothing to do with relationships and everything to do with Climate Change and Capitalism,” Fuentes says of the single. This is a sentiment surely echoed this November in the Puget Sound following the recent midterm elections. It’s a subtle play on words such as these that make WEEP WAVE a local band to watch.
