ROCK N' ROLL DUO ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM, PANTHER IN THE DOLLHOUSE, COMING 5/12/17 ON SIX SHOOTER RECORDS.
"Whitehorse are ready to gloriously bust some balls again" - Noisey
TURN ON / KISS OFF: WATCH THE NEW VIDEO FOR "BOYS LIKE YOU," OUT NOW.
Whitehorse trades some shade in a new video for “Boys Like You,” released today. Directed by Edmonton’s Trevor Anderson, an award-winning filmmaker whose work has appeared at Sundance and TIFF, the video echoes the song’s 90s recall with slinky glam and winking artifice. The new video was premiered today via Noisey alongside details of the next full-length album, Panther In The Dollhouse.
On this new album, Whitehorse takes a place of wholesome, conventional life and sets loose a wild animal to stalk, shred and smash its way through ideals of adult life and social conditioning. Whitehorse turns a microscope on domestic life to reveal a writhing, tangled biota of dreams and desire, despair and degradation.
With Panther In The Dollhouse, the duo’s songwriting makes a clean break from autobiography to fully embrace cinematic fiction in sleek, stylized collages of neo-noir drama and high-gloss showmanship. From the grindhouse ballad of “Die Alone” to the peroxide burn of “Trophy Wife,” the new songs are full of flawed characters, foiled plans and anti-fairytales.
To make this record, Whitehorse expanded their studio team with the addition of Likeminds, a pair of hip-hop/r&b producers and musicians. The beat-makers joined the returning crew of Gus Van Go and Werner F, who produced the band’s previous album, Leave No Bridge Unburned. The results bring vintage drum machines, samplers and analog synths into duo’s space twang sound.
Panther In The Dollhouse prowls May 12, 2017 on Six Shooter Records.
