More on iDKHOW

The band take their name from a line in Back To The Future and embrace the concept that they’re a lost act from the late 70s/early 80s who never quite made it. However, their music has recently been unearthed thanks to modern technology, and they’re resurrecting the tracks for today’s generation.

The band released a video for their track “Choke” earlier this year.

While the track appears on their latest 1981 Extended Play, it was actually released more than a year ago. “Choke” originally dropped Oct. 26, 2017, a date relating back to Back To The Future.

“I wrote ‘Choke’ to sort through how disenchanted I had become with living in Los Angeles,” Weekes said at the time. “I still love L.A. a lot, but it’s never felt like home for me. It can be a difficult culture to navigate if you don’t have any desire to fit in.”

You can check out the video below.
