The political is personal on Whitehorse’s new album, Panther In The Dollhouse, out today on Six Shooter Records. The new songs showcase high-drama, flesh-forward storytelling that sees characters make good (and bad) on their desires and impulses. Conventional romantic love – and the uptight normativity that often accompanies it – is cast aside for a more nuanced, progressive take on self-determinism, sexuality and social expectations.
Panther In The Dollhouse is turning heads with its skilful balance of Whitehorse’s signature twang and bold new elements, including pop and rock touches that further expand the sonic landscape. Just when you think you know what to expect from Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet, they deliver a record that refuses to be tamed by expectation. Panther In The Dollhouse is glammier, hammier, bigger and beatier, and it is their best work yet.
Whitehorse’s new record Panther In The Dollhouse has already seen rave reviews from Exclaim! and American Songwriter.
