[Translucent Blue Vinyl, Free US Shipping & Digital Download] – Light Upon the Lake

Formed from the core of guitarist Max Kakacek (ex-Smith Westerns) and singing drummer Julien Ehrlich (ex-Unknown Mortal Orchestra), to say that Whitney is more than the sum of its parts would be a criminal understatement. The band itself is something bigger, something visionary, something neither of them could have accomplished alone. Release June 3rd (preorder now).

Chicago's Whitney arrives as a fully formed gang of outsiders, their album rich in the musical history of the classic bands of the 60s and 70s.

Listen to The First Single “Golden Days” Here

Classic and modern at the same time, Whitney’s songs revel in concrete details, evocative turns of phrase, and thorny emotions that don't have exact names. The songs on Light Upon the Lake sound like they could have been written at any time in the last fifty years.

“We personified the band name into this person, and that helped a lot. We wrote the record as though one person were playing everything. We purposefully didn’t add a lot of parts and didn’t bother making everything perfect, because the character we had in mind wouldn’t do that.” –Whitney

Light Upon the Lake features the core of guitarist Max Kakacek (ex-Smith Westerns) and singing drummer Julien Ehrlich (ex-Unknown Mortal Orchestra). The powerhouse duo manifests new energy as the character, Whitney!

“There's a lot of true feeling behind these songs:

“We wanted them to have a part of our personalities in them. We wanted the songs to have soul.” –Ehrlich
