It seem everyone is getting ready for the festive season, and Californian weird-pop outfit WHY? are no exception. Following the release of their fourth LP Mumps, etc. in October, the band are releasing the track ‘Waterlines‘ as a limited 7″ single and the B-side is a Christmas ditty! ‘The Water You Walk’ is a jingle fulled stocking filler of a track and is definitely the alternative way to segue into the festive season. ‘Have a very merry Christmas / and bury me deep in this mess / I’ll be under where you walk’, sings Yoni Wolf. So, the fusion of Christmas and death isn’t exactly traditional, but what else would you expect from WHY?
Listen to ‘The Water You Walk’ below.
