Ethereal folk. Space Cowboy twang. Psychedelic spaghetti western. Intergalactic blues grooves. Pop noir. Since their debut in 2011, Whitehorse has evolved from magnetic folk duo to full-blown rock band. In truth, Whitehorse is never fully either one or the other, but an ever-evolving creative partnership that challenges both artists to explore new instrumental and lyrical terrain with each project. Together, Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland’s searing Americana noir sensibility is distinguished by guitar wizardry (and instantly recognizable tone) and magnetic harmonies.
Now, the JUNO Award winning duo Whitehorse return to the early days of electric blues. If you’re opting out of holiday music altogether (no judgement), take a trip through 1950s blues bops with The Northern South Vol. 2., the second instalment of a project that melds the grooves and melodies of the original selections with the band’s steamy, swampy, squalling approach.
