Neo doo-wop champion Philly Cuzz has weighed in with his nostalgically elevating single, Then They Wonder Why

It is probably no coincidence that when doo-wop mostly disappeared from the airwaves the world plummeted into existentialist angst. Case in point Philly Cuzz’s seminal single, Then They Wonder Why.

The endlessly energetic single finds a doo-wop roots-deep way to playfully berate quite literally hopeless romantics that can’t see their shortcomings that lead them to confused scorn. The tempo never falters into nostalgic pedestrianism around the handclaps, harmonically dynamic vocals, and of course, swoon-worthy guitars. It scarcely comes as a surprise that Philly Cuzz has made it into the East Coast Hall of Fame with his fresh neo spin on a now-archaic genre.

Then They Wonder Why is now available to stream via YouTube.
