Group sign to City Slang in Europe for new EP and album


Rucksacks on, boys! Earnest and thoughtful hippy hop troupe WHY? have announced their signing to the City Slang label in Europe, along with the release of a new EP this August (which will be released in the US through Anticon). The six-track Sod In The Seed will be a limited edition tour-only 12" (dates where you can get it below) though a digital version will be available. We're told that Sod in the Seed is a scion of the WHY? to come - Aiee! There's a new album, also on City Slang, coming too. The title track, which you can look at below, is a typically catchy discussion of the "First World's curse" - "who am I to judge a man's heart by his yacht wear?" they ask, wisely. Check out the track below, and the forthcoming tour
