New-York via Texas band Why Bonnie unveil two new tracks, “Sailor Mouth” and “Hot Car,” off of their forthcoming debut album, 90 in November, out August 19th on Keeled Scales.
Following the previous singles “90 in November”and “Galveston,” album opener “Sailor Mouth” is probably my favourite of the two mixing the right amount of melody and dissonance and they appear to have invented their own genre, “Shozegazeicana.” The song is all “about growing around your memories. Your foundation never changes but your relationship to it is always evolving,” explains singer-songwriter Blair Howerton.
It arrives alongside “Hot Car” which is all about the juxtaposition, and has a slightly darker vibe. As Howerton elaborates: “We wanted to include a contrast to the sunny disposition of the album. ‘Hot Car’ is meant for those quiet, contemplative, solo night drives.”
