Following the release of their sophomore album Empty Words in March, Mancunian psych-pop outfit Whyte Horses are becoming one of the genre’s most talked about UK bands.
Ahead of a huge September headline show at the Royal Festival Hall in London, with guest appearances from The Go! Team, La Roux, Badly Drawn Boy, Melanie Pain, and St Barts Choir, Whyte Horses last week released their first ever official music video.
A vibrant trip through northern countryside directed, produced and edited by James Slater, the video for ‘Never Took the Time’ is a fittingly dreamy visual representation of the band’s sound.
Whyte Horses play Green Man Festival on August 17th before their headline show at the Royal Festival Hall in London on September 13th.
Talking about the show, bound founder Dom Thomas describes the Whyte Horses Experience. “We approach each gig as stand-alone event in which we attempt to bring together all of our favourite films, music, art and squeeze it into one evening. We want to create an experience, a night that feels like The Velvet Underground sound-tracking a Stan Brakhage film, or The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour with an Exploding Plastic Inevitable-inspired lightshow”.
“We’ve invited like-minded special guests to perform songs with us in a quasi TV special format, between songs from our albums Pop or Not and Empty Words. The Whyte Horse Experience is a place to hide away and forget about the outside world for a couple of hours.”
Tickets are available from the South Bank Centre here.
