WHY? share new single, “G-dzillah G’dolah”

WHY? have shared “G-dzillah G’dolah,” as the latest single previewing their forthcoming new album, The Well I Fell Into.

"Here, we come to a moment of doubt about the doubt. In an airplane, flying to meet his love after not seeing her for some time, our guy feels small and helpless at the prospect of the impending engagement," says WHY?’s Yoni Wolf explains.

"In her absence, he has reconstructed her into a towering monster within his affections; a G-dzillah G’dolah— the ultimate God shadow baddie. He assures her that when they see each other, they will ‘make it right,’ but it’s clear he’s only grasping at tatters of the past. He can feel it, she’s slipping away. He’s supremely intimidated and hates himself for losing her in the first place. The song is entirely spoken from thirty thousand feet up in anticipation of the meeting, so as listeners we are left without resolution or report after the fact."

The Well I Fell Into will be self-released on Waterlines, which is Wolf's new label that follows in the footsteps of Anticon—the artist-run collective he co-founded. “G-dzillah G’dolah” comes on the hills of previous single, “The Letters, etc.”

The Well I Fell Into will be released on 2 August via Waterlines.
