Whitney- “Real Love”: Stephanie’s DJ Pick of the Week


Steph’s DJ Pick of the Week is “Real Love” by Whitney! Whitney was formed in 2015 by indie/pop artists Julien Ehlrich and Max Kakacek. The track is the first single from the Chicago duo’s upcoming album Spark.

The musical pair started work on the record in June 2021. On the band’s website, Ehlrich says, “During late night sessions over a two week period, we captured the embrace of anxiety and fear in a way that resonated with us immediately.”

Although the song’s lyrics embrace the feelings of anxiety and fear, the instrumentals provide a contrasting, more relaxed sound. The song feature’s Ehlrich’s lead vocals and drums along with Kakacek’s groovy guitar licks.

In addition to the new music, Whitney released details for their upcoming North American tour! Read more about the tour and band here, and be sure to watch the official music video for “Real Love” by Whitney below!
