Manchester psych-pop outfit Whyte Horses are gearing up for the release of their forthcoming LP Hard Times in January.
Having already already treated us to ‘Hard Times’ and cover of 70s jam ‘Ça Plane Pour Moi’, Whyte Horses have teamed up with La Roux’s Elly Jackson for another cover, this time of The Bee Gees ‘Mister Natural’. Whyte Horses unabashedly embrace the shimmering lavish pop aesthetic of the Bee Gees original, as it struts along with suave swagger amid bright organ chords and a thumping bassline. Each line is a bit melancholic and a little bit melodramatic as Jackson channels her inner Gibb as her gleaming vocals rise with the swelling passion. It is a lush, lavish and sultry slice of pristine pop – something of their calling card.
Hard Times will be out January 17, 2020 on CRC Records and you can listen to ‘Mister Natural’ below:
