Whitney

Biography


Ever since they wrote Light Upon The Lake as Chicago froze around them during winter 2014, Whitney have tried to make the kind of songs they'd be jealous of if someone else got there first. "You've Got A Woman", released on the B-side of Dutch duo Lion's 1975 psych-pop 7" But I Do, is precisely one of those songs. "As soon as I heard it, I wished I'd written the vocal melody; it's so catchy and powerful," says singing drummer Julien Ehrlich. Whitney's version is rich, instantaneous and deep in groove. There's trademark brass from Will Miller, wandering lead from guitarist Max Kakacek and bursts of strings. "It's quite evil-sounding for us," Julien says. "It was fun to mess around with something darker and throw strings in." It's a Whitney hit in much the same way as a certain other single they released with 'woman' in the title at the beginning of 2016. Like "No Woman," ‘Golden Days' and the rest of last year's debut, it's brushed with longing, nostalgia and serves to slow down time.
