Since their debut, Whitehorse has traveled from magnetic folk duo to full-blown rock band
and beyond. In truth Whitehorse is never fully either one or the other, but an ever-evolving
creative partnership that challenges both artists, Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet, to
explore new instrumental and lyrical terrain with each record. Steamy, swampy and
squalling in equal measure, Whitehorse's signature sound is guitar-heavy,
harmony-abundant and lyrically deft.
Now, the JUNO Award winners return with Strike Me Down , a collection of disco-twirling,
hard riffing tales from the brink and their second full-length release of 2021, following hot on
the heels of Modern Love . Strike Me Down showcases Whitehorse's masterful, fantastical
storytelling and melodic pop sensibilities, with plenty of space made for guitar shredding,
epic basslines and spaced-out vocal layering. High-impact production and prismatic visuals
contribute to Strike Me Down 's high-stakes, epic vibe. Key single "Why So Cruel"
synthesizes decades of dance-ready nightclub noir, from Blondie and ABBA to Kacey
Musgraves' "High Horse."

2022 sees Whitehorse’s prolific streak continue with another full length album scheduled for
release in I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying, as well as Volume 3 of the band’s popular The
Northern South series of covers EPs. In addition to the band’s long-awaited return to live
touring, with headline tours of North America and a host of high-profile summer festival
appearances lined up, it promises to be another stellar year for Whitehorse.
