Today, I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (iDKHOW) release their sparkly debut album ‘Razzmatazz‘ via Fearless Records/Caroline Australia.
The LP is a bewitchingly glitzy collection with a vibrant soundscape that perfectly encapsulates the essence of the band: it marries their love of pop rock and new wave, making it a “feverish explosion of fresh, addictive alt-rock energy” (Atwood Magazine). iDKHOW started in secret, when Dallon Weekes, the mastermind behind the band left Panic! At the Disco – he says of the album inspiration, “Razzmatazz is the magic industry dust that gets sprinkled over everything to make you think it’s all wonderful and shiny, but it’s pretty dirty and gross underneath.”
The album release follows a run of success tracks, including lead single “Leave Me Alone,” a”diabolical dance-floor jam” (Alt Press); the album title track, described as “energetic” (NME)and “glossy” (Substream); the “electronic-influenced” (Hysteria Mag) track “New Invention” and
“Lights Go Down” – a “bright and bouncing slice of indie-pop” (Mystic Sons).
The band has already achieved surprising success racking up over 100 million Spotify streams, the #1 spot on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart for the ‘1981 Extended Play‘ EP and 32k plays at Alternative radio reaching an audience of over 64 million.
Dallon Weekes made waves in Panic! At The Disco from 2009-2018, touring around the world and picking up Gold and Platinum plaques as a key songwriter on the chart-topping ‘Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!‘ and more. In 2016, he introduced iDKHOW at a small show in Los Angeles before denying its existence for months to follow. The project formally revealed itself prior to hitting the road and performing on the mainstage at UK’s Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as sharing stages with the likes of Twenty One Pilots, The 1975, Billie Eilish, The Killers, The National and Blink 182, just to name a few.
