Minneapolis band Why Not applies a formula of indie rock mixed with math rock and punk to their 2-minute-long single “Dear Friend, Pt. 2.”
The track houses irrefutable energy brought on by cutting guitar riffage and unbridled percussive bashing, all of which leads to reminiscence of a Minutemen tune. Furthermore, the song’s somewhat clumsily placed and sung lyrics serve to underline its raw punk aesthetic.
“Dear Friend, Pt. 2” was released as a single off the band’s debut full-length released on November 25th, entitled Friends.
