Why Write?

From Denmark, Why Write? is a new project by Jacob Faurholt, who has considerable success as solo artist and with Sweetie Pie Wilbur. Why Write? is Jacobs’ vehicle for a a trippy sound, which harks back to the early ninties and gives him the opportunity to collaborate with long term colleagues and friends.

It is always great to hear artists who decide to try out something a little different. Jacoub has taken the opportunity to create a whole new vehicle, to explore his creativity with colleagues he has known over the years.

This is ideal music for a quiet afternoon, or on getting back home in the early hours, as the sounds bounce back and forth in the ears, with some great use of reverb. The pitch is superb as Why Write? take you on a lazy spell of relaxation. Nothing to complicated to force the brain to work too hard, but don’t be mistaken by that. This is highly competent and well written music, which creates the calmness because it it well crafted. Far too many bands try to play this type of music and use complicated layers and echo, which does little but confuse the mind, completely failing in its effect. Why Write? has hit the bulls-eye with this.
