I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (iDKHOW), the musical project of Salt Lake City-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Dallon Weekes, unveils highly anticipated sophomore album, 'GLOOM DIVISION'. Along with the announcement comes new single ‘WHAT LOVE?’, an homage to the sexually suggestive R&B hits that ruled the 90s airwaves, amplifying the track’s seductive ambiance with slinky guitar riffs, potent basslines and lyrics channeling an aching desperation.
The single comes with a visually captivating video directed by iDKHOW’s longtime collaborator, Raúl Gonzo. Dallon takes viewers on a bewitching journey through a vivid set, reminiscent of a scene straight out of a John Waters film, seamlessly transitioning between various eccentric characters.
Produced by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT, Weezer), the album showcases a boundary-pushing fusion of R&B, post-punk and art-pop, exploring themes ranging from love and obsession to satanic panic and neurodivergence. Recorded at Fridmann's Tarbox Road Studios and Weekes' own basement studio, 'GLOOM DIVISION' is a testament to the power of collaboration and fearless artistic expression.
Dallon added, “Writing has always been an outlet to exorcize your demons or difficult emotions, but with 'GLOOM DIVISION' I made a conscious effort to stop censoring myself when it comes to the subject material, or what I wanted to say."
iDKHOW has garnered nearly 1 billion million streams worldwide to date, with 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify. The new album follows iDKHOW's critically acclaimed debut, 'Razzmatazz', which included the #1 Alternative radio hit ‘Leave Me Alone’, and the previous EP '1981 Extended Play' that included RIAA certified GOLD-certified single ‘Choke’. They have performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Ellen and CBS This Morning: Saturday, and shared stages with Post Malone, The Killers and more. iDKHOW has confirmed a hometown New Year’s celebration that will take place on December 30 at The Depot in Salt Lake City.
