Adam here with my DJ pick of the week from Chicago duo Whitney. Vocalist and drummer Julien Ehrlich (previously of Unknown Mortal Orchestra) and guitarist Max Kakacek (previously of Smith Westerns) received critical acclaim for their 2016 debut release Light Upon The Lake. Now the indie twosome has returned with their single “Giving Up.”
Featuring twangy guitars, a trumpet solo and Ehrlich’s signature falsetto vocals, the track is quintessential Whitney. Their sophomore LP Forever Turned Around is due out August 30 via Secretly Canadian. Listen to “Giving Up” below and let us know what you think.
