We Have Nothing
A frankenstein of NW rock'-The Spokane Inlander 'And I Was Like, What? is a confusing name for such a wholesome band. In fact, everything about this band seems to disorient your perceptions. For a band with a slightly tough-guy aesthetic, they are real sweethearts. Their lyrics are mostly heartfelt and honest reflections on relationships. They even have a violin underpinning most of their songs, to lighten their indie rock abruptness. It's hard to dislike these guys. In the song "Birthday Suite" the lead singer and guitarist, Shawn employs some impressive finger-tapping on his guitar. It is reminiscent of many late 90's and early 2000's math-rock efforts, but juxtaposed with a violin and heavy handed drummer. Seriously awesome. And I Was Like, What? might be a listener's initial reaction, but eventually understanding comes without asking anything. Just listen. Stop fretting.'-Seattle Show Gal 'It's the sound of four friends who grew up in the PacNW, crusing from the coast to the forest to the desert, with some hints of pop, country, and indefinable Northwest flavor lining the rough-hewn songs. It's a really good listen.' -The Portland Mercury This all-bearded band really had their shit together and it's hard to believe they are still unsigned. They sounded fantastic live, and I absolutely loved the band's use of the electric violin.-The Deli Magazine.
