Why Write?

Why Write? is Danish songwriter Jacob Faurholt's new project, formed after the dissolution of Sweetie Pie Wilbur.

Armed with a 5-song EP that features fuller instrumentation than his other band and with help from several Danish musicians Why Write? has taken the plunge once again. The intimate vocals and acoustic guitar of his previous work was traded for a spacey sound that sends you back to the early 90’s. The EP was mixed & mastered by American producer KRAMER (Daniel Johnston, Low, Galaxie 500), which is most definitely a nod to the past, and was released by the Canadian based label What A Mess! Records, in the fall of last year.

Noisy indie pop in it's purest form this will bring back visions of late 80's and early 90's British pop. Think of bands on Sarah Records meeting tinges of the Mary Chain, and recorded on about a $10 budget. Why Write? embrace this aesthetic and runs with and the results are simply fantastic. It's awesome indie pop dressed in an anorak and Doc Martens with NHS glasses. It's geeky, shy, and absolutely lovely and a refreshing proper blast from the past. Why Write when you can listen to this all day?
