Manchester Psych-Pop outfit Whyte Horses have released their first ever music video for new single Never Took The Time. Created with director/producer/editor James Slater, the video for Never Took The Time is filled with shimmery, wistful, 60s pop hues. Recorded by Mike Burnham at Buzz Studios, the single features former The Soundcarriers vocalist Leonore Wheatley and Nouvelle Vague’s Mélanie Pain. Following their lauded 2015 debut album Pop or Not, the band’s sophomore LP Empty Words was released on CRC records in March 2018.
The brainchild of co-founder of Twisted Nerve and Finders Keepers record labels Dom Thomas, the band was formed around Thomas’ vision of an outsider girl group, playing in a Mexican church. The video is released just a few weeks before members of The Go! Team will join The Whyte Horses Experience (alongside La Roux, Badly Drawn Boy, Melanie Pain and St Barts Choir) at their huge multi-media, special guest-laden headline show at Royal Festival Hall on September 13th. Thomas says of their live shows;
“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”.
Album Empty Words is out now on CRC Records.
