This debut EP is a bold statement of intent that’s bound to catch like wildfire.

IDKHBTFM (seriously, fuck that name) have presented a grand, glorious and fun set of 80s styled bangers that are so filled with exciting sounds and colourful production, with clever ideas and interesting lyrics to spare. If you miss the more colorful and experimental Panic! records then this should be right up your alley.

EDIT:...look, I went back to this thing after a good while of never listening to it and....oh god. What the hell was I thinking?

Original, clever, and interesting. IDK How quickly becomes everything Dallon Weekes' last band P!ATD isn't anymore.

Exited for the album.

Favourites: Bleed Magic (best) // Absinthe // Choke

Absolutely love Choke. IDKHBTFM seems to be good at producing catchy, dramatic tracks- however there is often a lot of repetitive sound in their albums. A lot of their songs that I like less have very similar structure and have difficulty surviving relistens - I hope that in future albums they will diversify and experiment more.

a sharp, perfectly executed artwork. an overarching theme and distinct music style while each song maintains strength on its own. magnificent. a dark undertone and unmatched basslines

top 3:
- Absinthe
- Choke
- Do It All The Time
