Electronic producer neek gathers her strength on entrancing “but why?”

Neek aptly expresses the sinking feeling of unrequited love in "but why?" Echoed with downcast isolation, the electronic producer asks herself that question over some heavily chopped-up vocals. But the plea is unheard, vacant and unresponsive, a technique that works marvelously over the track’s lavish, dreamlike ambiance. Hers is an unpresuming bedroom recording with a big heart, one whose otherwise universal message resonates brightly.

"But Why?" is the leadoff track off of neek’s debut EP, words i shouldn’t have, which is out now on all streaming platforms via Mateo Sound. Juan Rodríguez
