“OctaHate” by Ryn Weaver – A Song Reviw

     This is a guest post from Michelle MD. - Indie Obsessive welcomes Michelle and thanks her for the contribution.

     As a San Francisco South Bay Area resident, "Live 105" is the local rock radio station.  A Sunday night feature of the station is "Soundcheck" with Aaron Axelson, where local, up and coming, or Indie artists are highlighted.  A Sunday evening drive home allowed me to hear "OctaHate" by Ryn Weaver for the first time.  While it often takes several listens to get into a song, the lively background percussion and Weaver's voice caused "OctaHate" to immediately catch my attention.
     A little background research revealed that Ryn Weaver is a 21 year old based in New York and Los Angeles.  "OctaHate" is her single debut and has created a buzz since its debut last month.  The song features an impressive writer and co-producer line-up of Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos, Benny Blanco (producer for Katy Perry and Ke$ha), Cashmere Cat, and Carli XCX (Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" and "Boom Clap").
     The song begins with a catchy percussion beat that can then be heard in the background throughout the song.  Weaver's voice enters the track with a description of the heartbreaking nature of a relationship breakup. Each verse describes the feelings of the breakup, always coming back to the chorus lyrics:
I can't take it
From the day I saw my heart start breaking
Go on, save me
I can't take it, can't believe I really lost you, baby
Earth keeps shaking all around
Oh, you let me down
And I can't take it
From the day I saw my heart start breaking
Go on, save me.

      A tweet from Indie label Friends Keep Secrets shows Weaver as having signed, so hopefully we will not have to wait too long for additional singles from Weaver.
