Cambridge, Mass.’s Josh Arnoudse and Raky Sastri, also known as You Won’t, aren’t your typical music making duo. Their live shows are unorthodox to say the least, and they have a sense of humor that you’re not going to find anywhere else in popular music.
Not to be ignored, though, is You Won’t’s actual music. Their debut album, Skeptic Goodbye, was released earlier this year and and features a number of deeply affecting tracks, some energetic and lighthearted, some tender and contemplative. The songwriting is about as good as it gets for a duo known to dress up as mimes.
They dress up as mimes, you say? Yes, they do. If you don’t believe it, check out the cover of Skeptic Goodbye or their latest music video, for their song “Ten Years Old,” below.
