POZ Track-By-Track: The Weeds - Roots/Routes

by Zack Zarrillo - Feb 28, 2013

image

The Weeds (ex-TransitLate Nite WarsSleepsick) released their debut EP, Roots/Routes, this week via Catskull Records, and PropertyOfZack had the pleasure of streaming it on Monday. We’re now teaming up with the band for a new Track-By-Track breakdown of the EP. Check out what the band had to say about the songs on the EP below!

Sunset Eyes (Beautiful Life)
This was one of the last songs that we wrote before going into the studio to record Roots/Routes. We had studio time booked to record four songs plus a bonus track, but we really wanted to put a fifth song on the EP. We wanted a really cool intro for the album that goes into a fast heavy song and naturally with our excitement for recording, the sound we wanted came easily. It was October and Joe had an awesome riff that he was showing us that he was wicked excited about and everyone suddenly clicked on it.  

Attention
“Attention” was the second song we learned before Jarek joined the band. Joe had it written for a while and demoed it with a previous band he had called Sleepsick. He showed it to us and we all just fuxced on it wicked hard. The lyrics in that song really flow with the feel to the music, they just have a simple pop sensibility. There is nothing crazy in it but we think it’s a really strong song. We added our own spin on it and practiced it until we thought it was absolutely perfect.  

Death Valley
Justine wrote this months before we formed the band. It was the first song that The Weeds’ started to jam on.  “Deathy Valley” is probably our catchiest song on the EP and Justine thinks that this is our “pop” song. Death Valley is one of the lowest places in the world, so it represent the lyrics really well and was a perfect name for the song. In early July, Justine, Joe, and John got together at John’s apartment and played it stripped down and slow.  We decided to speed it up and make a couple of the parts a little heavier when Jarek joined us. 

Feel Nothing
This was another song Justine had before we were a band.  It was a lot different though, with a longer second verse and a weird guitar solo-y part.  We decided to make it as straight forward as possible and eliminate any parts that weren’t necessary. One of the lyrics that got taken out was: “the best feeling’s nothing”, and that’s why the song name stuck. Joe thinks that this is our “pop” song and John says that this is Justine’s “Taylor Swift song”.
