Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet tie the musical knot with Whitehorse, marrying their talent and chemistry as a smoldering duo. The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss is the songbird and falcon's first full-length album. The record takes surprising turns; while each track bears Whitehorse's signature blistering guitar work and love-knotted vocals, their willingness to take risks while staying true to themselves makes for captivating listening. The album covers impressive ground without compromising its artistic coherence. On stage, the duo punches above their weight, wielding a multitude of guitars amidst intricate looping pedals, stomp box, and odds and ends percussion. Luke and Melissa have been recognized with awards and nominations from the Juno Awards, Polaris Music Prize (Long List), the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Hamilton Music Awards, and the Independent Music Awards. Also available on LP.

Review

Get between the smouldering desire of these two singersongwriters and you will be crushed. --The Globe & Mail

It's their obvious passion, love and chemistry that makes these beautifully arranged, masterfully written alt-country love letters shine. --Uptown

It's the unexpected left turns that make this project exciting. --NOW Magazine

A friend of mine back home (in Canada) told me about this group. Great harmonies and catchy songs. I never write reviews but loved this album so much I had to say how awesome it is. It is on heavy rotation along with Lord Huron and Radical Face. I can't wait for the next album. Be sure to catch the YouTube video from the CBC of Devi's Got A Gun. Whitehorse - please tour the US!!!

This is a great album which easily makes my top ten 2012 Americana albums list. It's full of interesting songs and arrangements and great musicianship and singing. Not a clunker in the bunch. It's obvious that a great deal of thought went into producing this album. I'm looking forward to more output from this talented duo and seeing them live when they next perform nearby.

I have found myself humming "Out Like a Lion" throughout the day all of this last week. And whenever I'm able to put on the album, I am always happy to hear these two sing Achille's Desire. Their songs are catchy, sweet, and fresh! You will not be disappointed. There's a little bit of country, folk, and the good ole sound of singer-songwriters.

A small band that is creating intriguing music. Worth owning. Try them on youtube then support the band by buying a album.

One of the finest bands that I have in my collection. If you consider The Civil Wars to be the kind of band you look for, then definitely you will enjoy Whitehorse. Great songs, vocals and arrangements.
