WHY? have packed a tonne of their iconic experimental pizazz into new album AOKOHIO. Never ones to conform to a specific sound, but still, somehow, sounding identifiably themselves is one of the things that makes WHY? so interesting.

A whopping nineteen songs take you on a musical roller coaster through the mind of the relentlessly talented Yoni Wolf; undeniably and completely unique, this album is one of the few that feels really tangibly like art. You could call it hip-hop, indie rock, avant pop, psych rock or, perhaps most accurately, a culmination of them all. Each song on the album seems to explore a different avenue of motion, yet also seems incredibly refined and complete simultaneously. It’s interesting. It’s cool. Listen to it.
