WHY? Announces New Visual Album ‘AOKOHIO,’ Shares Second Movement

WHY?, the creative moniker for consummate wordsmith and beloved songwriter Yoni Wolf, is excited to announce AOKOHIO, a visual album to be released on August 9, 2019 via Joyful Noise Recordings. Today, WHY? is sharing the album’s second three-song movement and accompanying visual, “II. I’ve been carving my elbows, I might just take flight.,” which features focus track “Stained Glass Slipper.” The album’s entire visual element stars Emmy-winning actress Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) and was directed by Sundance Dramatic Special Jury Award-winner Miles Joris-Peyrafitte.

AOKOHIO‘s themes of familial anxieties and nostalgia will be familiar to many, but few have attempted as clear-eyed and sincere a portrayal as Wolf has succeeded with here. Collaborators like Lala Lala‘s Lillie West and both members of Sylvan Esso will no doubt come as welcome additions, both serving to bolster the unmistakable sound and vision on which WHY? has grown its legions of fans.
