Local psychedelic pop group Whyte Horses have released new music video for ‘Never Took the Time’, their first ever video in six years as a band. Whyte Horses found their distinct sound while travelling Italy and now create music that transports you back to the sixties and surrounds you with thoughts of peace, love and flower power. Their debut music video channels their genre completely, following a young boy on his adventures with a completely pink filter, as if looking through rose-tinted glasses.
The track features on the band’s newest album ‘Empty Words’, which was praised by NME for creating “a world of blissful, dreamy psychedelia that sounds both vintage and innovatively fresh”. The Mancunian locals, who have been likened to Brian Eno, were brought together by producer James Slater in 2012. The video was released just weeks before the Whyte Horses hit the road for their ‘Whyte Horses Experience’, alongside special guests such as La Roux, Badly Drawn Boy, Melanie Pain, St Barts Choir and members of the Go! Team. The psych-pop outfit will headline The Royal Festival Hall on September 13th for a “huge multi-media guest-laden show”, to create an experience like no other.
Writer Dom Thomas urges that the show “is a place to hide away and forget about the outside world for a couple of hours.” The band are also set to perform their dreamy tunes at Green Man Festival and will also be travelling to Point Éphémère in Paris on 12th December.
