WHY? Shares New Video For “One Mississippi”

Genre-crossing WHY? shares the video for the single “One Mississippi”. When talking about the track frontman Yoni Wolf said, “For me, this was exploring the levels of inner self you can go to compartmentalize your problems without realizing that it’s habit and you get stuck in (a) routine. Plus, I like old TVs.” The band has also announced 2018 U.S. tour dates which are below.


The band’s latest album Moh Lhean
 was released March 3rd  on Joyful Noise Recordings. It’s the follow-up to 2012’s Mumps, Etc., it’s the first fully home-recorded WHY? album since the project’s 2003 debut, made mostly in Yoni Wolf’s studio and co-produced by his brother Josiah.While WHY? fans will certainly encounter familiar sounds on Moh Lhean — Wolf’s sour-sweet croon, deadpan poet’s drawl, and ear for stunningly fluid arrangements with obsessive attention to detail — the album also reveals that a transformation has taken place. The singer’s self-deprecating swagger and cynical squint are replaced by a sense of peace in the unknowing; his wry smirk traded in for a holy shrug. This cosmic sense of calm and acceptance was woven throughout the album is due in part to Wolf’s circumstances during the writing process: he suffered a severe health scare far from home, but rather than let it drive him to depression, he gained a stronger connection to the living. Album track “Proactive Evolution,” which features mewithoutYou’s Aaron Weiss, even samples Wolf’s doctors — the very voices that helped shape his new outlook.
