REVIEW: iDKHOW astounds in debut EP

I Don’t Know How But They Found Me, more commonly known as iDKHOW, just might be the neatest band you don’t know about yet. The two piece group consists of former Panic! At the Disco bassist Dallon Weekes and Ryan Seaman, the former drummer of Falling in Reverse. 

On their debut EP, 1981 Extended Play, the band gets to showcase they have crafted over their past two years of creating music and touring.

From their first big song, Choke, to this now fully released set of six songs, iDKHOW has proven that they not only have something to say in the music world but they know how to stand out against the rest of their competition. 

The best song on the EP has to be Do It All The Time. It has a remarkably recognizable bass line that holds strong throughout the entire track in addition to stellar vocals.

Lead vocalist Dallon Weekes is not only one of the funniest men on Twitter, but has one of the most unique voices I’ve ever heard. It’s reminiscent of some of the best voices of the 1980s. He hangs on to words perfectly and knows exactly when and where to place the right amount of vibrato, especially in the song I mentioned above.

There are touches of new wave/electronic sounds mixed with great alternative beats that grab you instantly on this EP. It’s a must-listen for anyone who is interested in this new wave of…well, new wave-style sounds that hail from the 80s. 

iDKHOW can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming services. They are currently on tour as an opening act for Waterparks on the Entertainment Tour.
