The Fate Of The World Depends On This Kiss - Whitehorse

The husband and wife duo Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland comprise Ontario's Whitehorse, the musical chemistry on their latest release ‘The Fate Of The World Depends On This Kiss’ seeps like intoxicating vapors from a beaker on a hot Bunsen burner.  Capable of compounding a various range of music into a unique blend of rock and roll, the album wanders about from the psychedelic-meets-Spaghetti Western scorcher of “Achilles’ Desire” and the popish Série Noire "Devil’s Got A Gun” and ‘Jane’  to the  gorgeous harmonious folk ballad, ‘Cold July’ and haunting ‘Mexico Texaco’ to the rockers ‘Peterbilt Coalmine’ and ‘Radiator Blues’ with a cohesiveness bound together by riveting guitar and Melissa’s fiery vocals all on full display in the song  ‘No Glamour In The Hammer’
Most definitely added to the bands to watch from the great white North list and another fine release from Six Shooter Records.
