Wakey Wakey Rise & Shine unveils frantic new tune, "Why Am I Here?"

Wakey Wakey Rise & Shine have today unveiled their frantic new tune, "Why Am I Here?", which is the first since 2022's "Softly Softly Catchy Monkey". The return of the Bristol-based quintet has been eagerly awaited by our lot here at It's All Indie and it seems like it was well worth the wait.

High-octane indie-pop ready for the festival tents!

The jangly burst of guitars at the start gives way to a sizzling synth tone, and it's here that the track quickly evolves into an out-and-out indie-pop gem for the summertime. The high-octane drums and upbeat nature of the guitars will go down a treat in any live setting, and with the vocals being perfectly mixed into the track you'll soon be chanting the lyrics back to them!

Speaking about the song the band says - "The idea behind this song was to create an upbeat song people could dance to but with lyrics that are completely juxtaposed which essentially describe a breakdown."
