WHY? Share Video for New Song ‘G-dzillah G’dolah’

    WHY? have previewed their upcoming album, The Well I Fell Into, with a new single called ‘G-dzillah G’dolah’. The track, which follows lead single ‘The Letters, Etc.’, is accompanied by a Scott Fredette-directed video. Watch and listen below.

    “Here, we come to a moment of doubt about the doubt,” the band’s Yoni Wolf explained in a statement. “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. 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 arrives August 2 on WHY?’s own Waterlines label.
