Meet Ryn Weaver, The Mysterious Twentysomething Behind This Summer's Best Song
The internet is going crazy over her insanely catchy song "OctaHate," but where did she come from?
The song was created with an all-star team of Charli XCX, Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos, and producers Cashmere Cat and Benny Blanco.
And though that team sounds a little too good to be true, don't think it's the mastermind plot of some major label. Ryn responded to a commenter on a Stereogum article explaining how the collaboration was a more a matter of right time-right place, and hard work:
"hehe that would be nice to have some major label money. Actually, i met benny at a party a year back and showed him my sound cloud… he had already been working with cashmere cat a bit… and he showed michael some of my music that I had produced and written on my own… and we all kinda just started to make some music. I'm signed to friends keep secrets… and indie. this is actually more of a passion project for them but it's my vision. I know i'm not supposed to respond to internet trolls but i was bored. xx"
