Sibling fronted indie pop outfit Why We Love are releasing their new EP The Boy You Knew this week via My Little Empire Records. Their past single “All Good Things Must Drown” won the Amazing Radio Audition; a song that featured smooth harmonies and a playful water fight in their music video.
On the latest EP, the Bristol based quartet dip between sunny lyrics and acoustic guitars, indie harmonies and guitar driven choruses, channelling the likes of Belle and Sebastian.
Opening track ‘Staying Awake’ is obsessively catchy and twee; a song that should immediately be added to summertime playlists, especially so if you’re heartbroken.
The upfront guitar on ‘Surrender’ is driven and infectious, while the stomping drums on ‘Hit The Ground Running’ prove that the Bristol group can execute harsher choruses and drum beats just as successfully as those delicate and charming rhythms.
There isn’t a filler on this EP, instead five incredibly well-crafted indie tunes that will get your feet tapping in preparation for summertime.
The Boy You Knew is out on 25th March via My Little Empire Records.
