Flamboyant, retro-futuristic indie-pop duo
Formed in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2016, I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (without an apostrophe in “Don't” and often shortened to iDKHOW) are two longtime friends – vocalist and guitarist Dallon Weekes and drummer Ryan Seaman.
Their name pays homage to the classic 1985 film Back To The Future. It’s the phrase uttered by Doc Brown to Marty McFly after he’s stolen the plutonium needed to fuel his time machine and then found by the Libyan nationalists.
Weekes originally conceived iDKHOW as a solo project when he was a member of Panic! At The Disco and while Seaman was in Falling In Reverse. In 2017, they left their respective bands and released the debut single Modern Day Cain as I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME.
Inspired by the idea of making music, artwork and stories, much like David Bowie with Ziggy Stardust and The Beatles with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Weekes and Seaman set off to create fictional narratives while melding together spacey synths, big band undertones, offbeat drums and witty lyricism.
In early 2018, iDKHOW released the track Nobody Likes The Opening Band. Shortly after, they signed with Fearless Records and released their debut EP 1981 Extended Play. It led to numerous radio appearances, a sold-out US tour and a performance at Reading & Leeds festival.
The two-piece released the three-track festive EP Christmas Drag in 2019.
Their debut album RAZZMATAZZ, a modern take on the synth-pop style of the ’70s and ’80s, came out in October 2020. Preceded by Leave Me Alone, New Invention and the title track, it was produced by Tim Pagnotta (Sugarcult, blink-182, Walk The Moon) and reached No.87 on the UK albums chart.
In June 2021, I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME announced a couple of shows at Glasgow’s SWG3 and London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town as well as an appearance at Reading & Leeds in August 2021.
