The latest full-band project from Texan artist Blair Howerton, Why Bonnie released their debut Water back in 2018 and have now returned, announcing their upcoming EP Voice Box, set for release next month.
Title track and lead single, ‘Voice Box’, oozes sunny uplifting vibes as shimmering hooks and Howerton’s rich, luscious vocals flow with a soaring emotion. With shades of the twinkling surf-rock of the likes of Alvvays or Best Coast (which is no bad thing in my books), it’s a truly dreamy offering fuzzing with a dazzling, effervescent charm.
Of the upcoming EP, Howerton explains:
“It encapsulates a disconnect between my inner and outer world, and not being able to express myself authentically because of that. But, ultimately knowing I will crash and burn if I don’t.”
Voice Box, the upcoming EP from Why Bonnie, is out 10th April via Fat Possum Records.
