“'All I Know', lovely! 'Lying Through Your Lipstick' vocal sounds like Jamie Hoover [Spongetones] with 10cc background vocals. Cool. Diggin' it!”
'All I Know', lovely! 'Lying Through Your Lipstick' vocal sounds like Jamie Hoover [Spongetones] with 10cc background vocals. Cool. Diggin' it. Another song reminded me of Dee's [Klaatu guitarist Dee Long's] vocals 'Paint Me Happy'.
The Summer of Love may be long behind us, but, with their new EP, Autumn of Love, Lehigh Valley-based rockers TimeWhy shave kept its spirit alive for any season. The EP begins with 'Paint Me Happy', whose swirly guitars and rich, 60s-inspired harmonies combine with modern-day crisp production to set the tone. Things slow down a bit on 'Lying Through Your Lipstick', a lament of dishonesty driven by hazy, distorted keys and power chords. Beatles fans especially those of the McCartney persuasion will enjoy the whimsy of the upbeat 'I Said Hello', while the guitar work on closing track 'All I Know' stands up and has a strong presence in a tune about enduring love.

The oddly-punctuated TimeWhys is a Pennsylvania band who unabashedly make 60s-inspired music, leaning to the Beatlesque. Their 4-track debut EP is a treat. 'Paint Me Happy' is Hermans Hermits-meets-The Association, 'Lying Through Your Lipstick' sounds like a mid Beatles Lennon track, 'I Said Hello' seems inspired by 'Penny Lane' and 'All I Know' draws from George Harrison via The Beach Boys. Definitely a year-end contender for the best EPs of 2017 list.
Fans of Beatlesque pop will rejoice in the short, but effective slices of nostalgia. The swirling 'Paint Me Happy' is a bouncy psyche pop gem akin to Two Sheds Jackson and the slower Lennonesque. 'Lying Through Your Lipstick' is very much like The Pillbugs. Each song is a sonic sugar rush for fans for ELO, Pilot, Klaatu and similar late-era Beatle influenced bands. Shame its only four tracks, but Ill take quality over quantity any day. Highly Recommended.
I've just listened to samples from your wonderful EP, 'Autumn of Love'. These songs are such a terrific, smile-inducing breath of fresh air. All told, they constitute a warm, luscious, beautifully written and performed quartet of catchy melodic pop.
We want more!! GREAT!!
