A mind-expanding delight, devoid of retro posturing.” The Guardian
“Ominous and luminous, expansively spacious and sonically imploding, scientific, ephemeral and eternal” The Quietus
‘The Revolution Of Super Visions‘ is the first emission from Jane Weaver’s new album,‘Flock’, set for release on 5th March 2021.
These are strange times. Everything is different. One thing we know for sure, is that Jane Weaver continues to metamorphosise…

New album ‘Flock’ is the record that Jane always wanted to make, the most genuine version of Jane Weaver, complete with unpretentious day-glo pop sensibilities, wit, kindness, humour, glamour…
It features an untested new fusion of seemingly unrelated compounds fused into an eco-friendly hum; pop music for post-new-normal times. Created from elements that should never date, its pop music reinvented.
Still prevalent are the cosmic sounds but ‘Flock’ is a natural rebellion to the recent releases which sees her decidedly move away from conceptual roots in favour of writing pop music.
Produced on a complicated diet of bygone Lebanese torch songs, 1980’s Russian Aerobics records and Australian Punk.
The musician’s exposure to an abundance of lost records served as a reminder that you still feel like an outsider in this world and that by overcoming fears you can achieve artistic freedom.
The first broadcast from this flickering set is the single ‘The Revolution Of Super Visions’, an untelevised Mothership connection, with Prince floating by as he plays scratchy guitar; it also features a funky whack-a-mole bass line and synth worms. It’s upbeat, a story, a revolution in the head…
“The revolution accidentally happens because so many people visualise the same ideals and something supernatural occurs. Everyone is exhausted with social media, inequality and the toxic masculinity of world leaders contributing to a dying planet.” Jane Weaver
It’s a consciously positive vision for negative times.
Beautifully packaged, ‘Flock’ is released on Fire Records and will be available on olive-green vinyl with a deluxe ‘tip-on’ sleeve and poster (Rough Trade Exclusive), cream vinyl (Indie Store Exclusive) along with standard light rose vinyl edition and CD.
