Anyone lucky enough to have witnessed Whyte Horses' “engaging, eccentric extravaganza” (The Guardian) live will know that Whyte Horses make a joyous kind of music often juxtaposed with a sprinkling of the melancholic. It’s a sound which lifts and tugs at the heartstrings simultaneously. Thus they would seem most apt to strike that perfect bittersweet balance that characterizes some of the best Christmas music.
The resulting twin A-sides "Next Year Will Be Mine" and "Coldest Night of the Year" are songs that beautifully blend the indie-psych, cosmic folk and 60s French-style pop unique to Whyte Horses, laced with some lovelorn lyrics and magical Christmas bells.
Next Year Will Be Mine is an original Whyte Horses track full of joyful eccentric kitsch, chiming Christmas bells and honeyed harmonies…a festive treat that will warm the heart of any Christmas Scrooge. The song captures the shedding of one year and the hope of all the next one will bring, wrapped up in wall-of-sound production, so distinctive, that anyone would be forgiven if they thought Phil Spector had a hand in making this record.
Coldest Night of the Year is a cover of Vashti Bunyan’s early 60’s classic which pays homage to the original but with lashings of Whyte Horses’ magic. The soaring chorus melts away the heartache and turns the song into one which captures the wonderful bittersweet feeling of the longing for loved ones at this time of year.
Both tracks were recorded at Studio Humbug, Isle of Wight, produced by Boe Weaver and released via CRC Records (2018).
Following their critically acclaimed records ‘Pop Or Not’ and ‘Empty Words’, their upcoming album ‘HARD TIMES’ is set for release 17 January 2020.
