Jesse 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 sophomore LP Forever Turned Around.
Featuring twangy guitars, a trumpet solo and Ehrlich’s signature falsetto vocals, the album’s lead single “Giving Up” is quintessential Whitney.
Forever Turned Around is out now via Secretly Canadian. Listen to “Giving Up” below and let us know what you think.
