Palberta – “Why Didn’t I”

Palberta’s new full-length, Bye Bye Berta, comes out next month, and we’ve heard a few tracks from it already, “Ode To Honey” and “She Feels That Way” (two ways), and today the eccentric trio have shared another new one. “Why Didn’t I” tip-toes along with a weary menace, off-key guitars coiling around the group’s harmonizing: “Why didn’t I say a thing like that?/ My friend, didn’t I say a thing like that?” The song’s wiry composition mirrors the sinking unease and paranoia reflected in its words, a world in which you can’t quite be sure of what’s real and what’s a lie. Listen below.

Bye Bye Berta is out 2/10 via Wharf Cat (vinyl) and Ramp Local (cassette).
