Blair Howerton started songwriting as a coping mechanism during her formative years. Her vivid lyricism has bloomed into the dazzling, full-band emotional release known as Why Bonnie. The band's Fat Possum Records debut EP Voice Box celebrates unhindered expression via beguiling, propulsive guitar pop. Howerton joined lifelong best friend Kendall Powell, who she met in preschool. Powell's classical piano chops swapped to synth for the new project. Both active in the Austin scene, guitarist Sam Houdek and bassist Chance Williams later joined to complete the lineup. Fuzzed-out guitars and crystalline vocals drive a tough-edged struggle in the space between suppression and artistic liberty. Howerton explains: It encapsulates a disconnect between my inner and outer world, and not being able to express myself authentically because of that. But, ultimately knowing I will crash and burn if I don't.

Voice Box brings together Americana, twee dream pop and fizzing indie rock
Voice Box is a wonderfully melodious collection of songs that flew way under the radar in April. Released on Fat Possum, Voice Box brings together Americana, twee dream pop and fizzing indie rock for the band’s third EP, all spearheaded by Blair Howerton’s vivid songwriting. If you’re a fan of languid and hazy, female-fronted indie-pop with an Americana edge, think Squirrel Flower or Alvvays, Why Bonnie could be the best thing you didn’t hear in April.
