Whyte Horses are a glorious mystery. The band – if, indeed, they are a band – released their debut album ‘Pop Or Not’ in 2016, achieving rapturous critical acclaim, including praise from Noel Gallagher, the ‘Album of the Year’ award from Piccadilly Records and endless support from BBC 6 Music.
Sophomore album ‘Empty Words’, released 9th March 2018 via CRC Records, is a record of innovative eclecticism, which takes you on a sonic journey through soul, 60’s pop and Nouvelle Vague-esque ballads through to fuzzed-up psychedelic rock. The sound is timeless, sounding simultaneously like everything and nothing you’ve ever heard.
Their latest single, a psychedelic infused rendition of seminal 1970’s track ‘Ça Plane Pour Moi’ (Plastic Bertrand), was premiered by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music on August 21st, and is hinting at more to come from the band in the very new future.
Live, Whyte Horses craft a fusion of music and visuals that recalls everything from Andy Warhol to Brazil’s tropicalia movement. Matching a sweet sense of innocence to lingering darkness, Whyte Horses are a uniquely intriguing experience, capable of cutting through the fog of the everyday. Prepare to become obsessed.
