Chicago band WHITNEY comprises former members of buzzy psych-rockers Smith-Westerns and Laneway faves Unknown Mortal Orchestra and their medium is charming folk with lashings of soul. Debut Light Upon the Lake was anointed Best New Music by Pitchfork and no wonder - the album perfects the deceptively difficult task of making well-crafted, enjoyable rock songs look effortless. Lyrically, Whitney deal mostly in heartbreak but the toe-tapping vitality of the music itself invites endless joyful listens. In short, It’s the happiest sad music you ever did hear.
