Whyte Horses are a glorious mystery. The 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 in 2018, is a record of innovative eclecticism, which takes you on a sonic journey through soul, 60s pop and Nouvelle Vague-esque ballads through to fuzzed-up psychedelic rock. The sound is timeless.
Their latest single, a psychedelic infused rendition of seminal 1970s 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 near 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.
‘The Mancunian melodicists’ second album draws on classic 60s pop gentle psychedelia and guest vocals from La Roux, just really lovely.’ The Guardian 4/5
