Album of the Day Challenge: Day 1

WOHO is a band I've been following around for awhile through all their different "sounds." Those sounds being "Boring Car Seat Headrest" to sad, to sadder, to saddest. All while being a pretty dedicated fan to this kind of sound. Hell! I like Shaving Cream! Not even the creator of Shaving Cream likes Shaving Cream! And for a while Shaving Cream was my favorite WOHO album, with it's breezy atmosphere and luscious sounding delivery and ... read more

I've heard that their earlier releases are noisier, but I do think that this sound suits them very well, with this album feeling like a warm blanket ... read more

We Are Only Human Once, or also known as WOHO, are a band from Delaware, Ohio, formed by kind of recently added member named Willard, and founder of the project, Addie, or also known for their nickname ''SK8R H8R''. My relationship with them or this band before this day was nule. Some people mentioned it on the Brad server, they occasionally joined convos there, so I barely knew who they were on what genre do they even do.
