Welcome to the world of WHITEHORSE - glam and sleaze; desert grit and subway rats; scum-bags and fakers; hot messes and cold shoulders - delivered with a brazen sonic breadth encompassing psychedelic surf, arid border rock, lo-fi ingenuity and icy 80’s sparseness. Their unique, vibrant approach shines in their take on “I’m On Fire”, “Devil’s Got A Gun”, “Emerald Isle”, “Downtown” and “Baby What’s Wrong”. New album, Panther In The Dollhouse, brings a twist to Whitehorse's studio approach with the addition of beats and bleeps from NYC hip-hop production duo Like Minds (Kanye West, Snoop Dogg). But while each new album sees the duo's sound evolve, the essence of Whitehorse's musical identity remains their dizzying guitar playing and vocal chemistry. On Panther In The Doll house, Whitehorse delves deep into body politics and explores questions of consent, self-determination and, ultimately, freedom; largely from the perspective of women. Layers of retro psychedelic pop bubble up on “Nighthawks”, a song that explores the constructs of perpetrator and victim on the streets. The track is a companion piece to the slow-burner “Evangelina”, from the album Leave No Bridge Unburned, which reimagined the sex worker as superhero in celebration of those who challenged Canada's prostitution laws at the Supreme Court of Canada in 2013. Panther In The Dollhouse also sees WHITEHORSE fully embraces cinematic fiction with neo-noir drama and high-gloss showmanship. From the grindhouse ballad of “Die Alone” to the peroxide burn of “Trophy Wife”, the album is packed with inventive sonic elements and neo-noir drama, full of flawed characters, foiled plans and anti-fairytales. WHITEHORSE won the JUNO Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year (2016) and garnered a nomination for the Blues Album of the Year JUNO Award (2017). In addition, “Downtown” charted #2 on Canadian Alternative Radio and remained Top 10 for 4 months (2015). Noisey (Vice) declares, “Whitehorse are ready to gloriously bust some balls.” 􀀘 For more about WHITEHORSE visit: www.whitehorsemusic.ca; www.sixshooterrecords.com.
