Hong Kong indie rock band Stranded Whale release new 7″ out on Sweaty & Cramped Records also out of Hong Kong. The label had this to say about the band and release:
“Why Don’t You?” is the second record in the This Ain’t Gonna Cut It series by Stranded Whale – one of Hong Kong’s best folk group to date. Fronted by singer-songwriter Jabin Law, the band has gone on to explore various sounds outside of folk and crafted their own sensibility. This record is loaded with two new compositions created during an intense period of writing and recording, a period of clashing ideas together to form new thoughts.
Side A’s title track starts off with a stack of notes moving in unison, before launching into an easy groove best suited for driving with the hood popped.
Side B takes a darker turn – one that you’ll have to find out yourself.
A truly one time only record, only 50 copies ever made.”
