why bonnie – “practice”

austin upstarts why bonnie are eyeing the release of their debut extended play, in water, due next friday via the wonderful sports day records.  after announcing their arrival with the propulsive jaunt “made of paper,” the texas quartet deftly switch gears on a new single, “practice.”

“practice” stakes its claim on a collective mid-tempo ostinato, one that allows vocalist blair howerton ample ground to develop her narrative and follows her lead as she shifts into the track’s mantra: “the rest is practice / it’s not the real thing.”  after appearing to wrap up just past the two-minute mark, “practice” blossoms into a gorgeous coda saturated with extra textures to make its resolution that much more triumphant.

why bonnie will drop their four-track effort in full on february 16th.  disappear into “practice” below.
