Indie band from Chicago, Whitney, will play at Union Transfer in Philadelphia this Friday, September 27th. The concert is part of a tour in support of their newest album Forever Turned Around. This project, released in late August, is the followup to their debut LP, 2016’s Light Upon the Lake.
The band creates a delicate sound that should translate well to an intimate live performance. Their style has been likened to the early work of indie-folk band Bon Iver. They feature a healthy dose of folk and country glossed in the atmosphere of Chicago soul. Whitney’s music, especially given enough time, can lull listeners peacefully into the blissful world being constructed by their instrumental patterns and light vocals.
Whitney is expected to play music from both their recent and older record at this show. If that’s the case, audience members will be treated to an array of instruments as both string and brass sounds accentuate their simple pop-rock song structures. The duo that comprises Whitney, Max Kakacek and Julien Ehrlich, are no strangers to live performance as they toured with former bands Smith Westerns and Unknown Mortal Orchestra respectively. Indie band Whitney will be joined by opening act Hand Habits in Philadelphia. Tickets are still widely available to be purchased here.
