Glam and sleaze, desert grit and subway rats, scum-bags and fakers, hot messes and cold shoulders: welcome to the world of Whitehorse, a rock duo from Toronto.

Whitehorse’s brazen sonic breadth encompasses psychedelic surf, arid border rock, lo-fi ingenuity and icy 80’s sparseness. Luke Doucet’s Gretsch White Falcon and impeccable tone, combined with Melissa McClelland’s blazing vocals and badass P- Bass playing, have made the duo’s sound is unmistakably, inventively ‘Whitehorse.’ The duo’s songwriting is distinguished by its cinematic fiction, full of flawed characters, foiled plans and anti-fairytales that transform real life into sleek, stylized collages of neo-noir drama and high-gloss.

Whitehorse began as something of a folk duo, but quickly outgrew that box with their inventive instrumentation and resistance to expectation. The duo moved into ‘space cowboy’ twang territory on the debut apocalyptic full-length The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss, a fitting title lifted from a Wonder Woman comic. From there, Whitehorse expanded the intergalactic atmospherics with Leave No Bridge Unburned, a chase-scene-velocity acceleration into rock n’ roll, with lethal riffs and near indecent vocal heat. Most recently, the duo rebuilt early electric blues for The Northern South Vol. 1, which showcased the duo’s adventurousness and enviable guitar collection.

With the new single “Boys Like You”, Whitehorse once again mixes things up, adding hip-hop producers and processed beats, and expanding their studio sound with samplers, vintage drum-machines and more. The result is a song that is an irresistible fusion of 90s guitar rock riffs and Brit pop-inspired swells with futuristic, cinematic production.
