Hamilton Leithauser and Paul Maroon "How and Why"
Published Aug 10, 2015With the Walkmen on an "extreme hiatus," band members Hamilton Leithauser and Paul Maroon are preparing to release a duo album called Dear God. With the Etsy release coming late this month, they have now shared the song "How and Why."
The arrangement is a simple one, as Leithauser croons while accompanied by cavernous, reverb-drenched piano chords. It's a quietly affecting, lovely ballad with a vintage vibe.
A description on SoundCloud reads, "Another Song from Dear God, the greatest record ever written and recorded." Decide whether there's any merit to that claim by listening below.
