Why? – Eskimo Snow (new album / tour dates / video)

Why?

Eskimo Snow

(Anticon)

Releasing: 22 September

Bay Area art-poppers Why? release Eskimo Snow today on Anticon. This time around, their music has a more folksy panache littered with lyrical introversion, a break away from the primal rap and angst-ridden beats of Alopecia. Watch Why? perform “Eskimo Snow”, a somber synth-ballad whose quiet reflections viscerally ring true.
