Manchester psych-pop outfit Whyte Horses are responsible for one 2018’s most enjoyable records in Empty Words, as they whisked us off to a land of blissful, dreamy psychedelia, sounding both familiar yet fresh.
Whyte Horses make a welcome return with a surprise new single ‘Ça Plane Pour Moi’; a cover of Plastic Bertrand’s seminal 1970’s track. Choosing to cover such a classic track reflects the fearless and timeless pop qualities of Whyte Horses. Retaining the playful, melodic and seductive punk-tinged pop energy of the original but is given a modern makeover with lush pop treatment, soft psych brush strokes and intoxicating, dreamy vocals and seductive harmonies. This is Whyte Horses doing what Whyte Horse do best. Their knack for borrowing from the old and creating something new and contemporary, yet simultaneously timeless, is without compare. Hopefully this studio time has also yielded further material too.
