This would be geek-rock heaven
DeMarco has always been very vocal about his love for the band. Now in a new amateur video interview recently posted to Youtube, he’s suggested that he would be open to the idea given the chance – providing the scenario wasn’t forced or awkward.
“With Weezer?,” DeMarco replied. “That would be crazy.”
“I have no idea, maybe, I’m just not very good at it,” continued. “For me, where I’m at now, I’ve met a lot of people that I admire so I think the option is there, the chance is there.”
“It just always feels weird to me when it’s a setup, kind of playdate thing. But who knows, only time will tell. We’ll see.”
Speaking to Pitchfork, DeMarco previously revealed that Weezer’s classic ‘The Blue Album’ was the first album that he ever bought.
“I had 20 bucks, and I was walking down the hip street in my hometown, and I was like, “Maybe I’ll buy a CD.” A year and a half ago, me and my friends really got into Weezer again,” he said. “I love Weezer.”
He’s also covered ‘The Sweater Song’ in the past. Check it out below.
